7/8 and Ocean First Institute

This video was made by Ocean First Institute, the non-profit we (the 7/8 team)  worked with for the project week on Ocean Exploration and ROVs (remotely Operated Vehicles). During the week, students investigated the following driving questions: Why is ocean exploration an opportunity and a necessity? How do scientists study the ocean? We learned about the importance of ocean exploration (including a trip to the aquarium) and different vessels for exploration, including underwater ROVs. After studying the engineering design process, students built their own working ROVs from scratch and then tested them in the pool at Ocean First to attain neutral buoyancy. The video shows some of the process and the ROV competition that took place on the last day of the project.
