Episode Summary

Episode 09 Underwater Robots
There?s a variety of things we can do to look after our oceans. In the long run, they depend on two things: a good understanding of how our oceans work, and engaging tomorrow?s decision makers in caring for our waters and their inhabitants.Our first video shows how a Marine Science teacher tackles both of these challenges. His students have built devices that can see and propel themselves underwater. These are called Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). In our second video, we?ll see how scientists use similar but larger ROVs to learn about creatures that live more than a mile below the ocean?s surface in our National Marine Sanctuaries.moreless
