Are you a middle or high school teacher? Do you teach environmental science, marine science, engineering, physics or physical science? This may be just the workshop for you! Teachers will learn about ROVs, remotely operated vehicles, and how they are used to explore, research, and work in ocean waters too deep or dangerous for humans. Fun field experiences include a trip aboard the R/V Alabama-Discovery and seeing a fully functional ROV at work. Teachers will be provided with ROV materials to take back to their school, where they will assemble a team of students to build and improve a basic ROV. Teams will return to the Sea Lab in the spring for an ROV competition! Two teachers per school required, and must have administrative support for team component.

Location: Dauphin Island Sea Lab (Alabama)
