Sea Perch Deployment Event at UNH

Know the Coast Day is an annual event sponsored by the University of New Hampshire and hosted at the Jere Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory in Durham, NH. This two-day event is open to the public and teachers are welcome to bring students to talk with scientists, operate an MIT Sea Grant ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) in a deep water tank, learn about ocean mapping, check out 3D ocean visualization and much more! Registration for this event is required.

Research Engineer, Mike Soroka, and Engineering Educator, Kathryn Shroyer, will attend and display REX III. They will speak with students and teachers about MIT Sea Grant, the AUV lab, the use of REX for invasive species research, how AUV's and ROV's work, as well as how important these vehicles are for ocean science research.
