Understanding that advances in science and technology is a global collaborative, Mary McLeod Bethune students received a premier in Robotics at the Infinity Science Center.
The one-hour lab challenged the students to use engineering processes to modify and control an ROV to meet the requirements of several tasks/missions. Students worked in teams in order to learn teamwork and project collaboration. The class deepened the students’ understanding of the advanced uses of ROV’s in underwater exploration, scientific investigation, and salvage of environments that are not suitable for humans.
Additionally, the class provided an overview of the skills that are critical for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) scientists, oceanographers, and the U.S. Navy.
