A new way to exploreLearn more
Update I am having a meeting next week to determine the dates of the expedition which has been delayed due to the work schedule, preliminary the dates are mid Oct to mid Nov. while out in ascension i will be hopefully be conducting surveys in association with the Ascension Island Conservation group as well as Bristol university and producing 3D reconstructions of marine areas using photogrammetry. Also ariel surveys to produce 3D models of the coastal environments. Testing on cable feed throughs is all ready to commence once the pressure RIG is repaired. The light pods i have designed have been built finally. These will attach to a drop device with a simple camera set up inside. The workshop here at bristol has done an excellent job making these, they now require a bit of assembly putting in the LED circuit in.
With a few reboots, we got all thrusters working properly, and the servo working to trigger a mini-Niskin bottle for water samples.
The USC Young Scientist Program (YSP) is hosting a deep sea science workshop at Vermont Elementary on November 15th, 2016 from 2- 5 PM. There will be fifty 4th and 5th grade students from Vermont Elementary. YSP, Ocean Exploration Trust/ Nautilus, Deezmakers and the Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations (CDEBI) are collaborating to make the event happen. Students will learn how scientists explore the deep sea with underwater robots and tools and see how the deep sea floor is studied. A scientist from onboard the Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus will also be present to talk about discoveries and science occurs when they explore the deep sea floor. The Young Scientists Program works in partnership with five USC community schools, from the greater ‘USC Family of Schools’ to engage more than 1400 elementary school students, 45 LAUSD teachers, and five principals through a broad repertoire of science curriculum. YSP Teaching Assistants, or TAs, are placed at each school presenting hands-on science labs to fourth and fifth grade classrooms. YSP brings scientific laboratory experiences directly to students and their teachers with the goal of supplementing current science instruction, complimenting LAUSD and state grade level science learning standards, strengthening science literacy and promoting interest in scientific careers
