LIVE INTERACTION W/ WINDHAM EDUCATOR ABOARD TITANIC SHIPWRECK DISCOVERER DR. ROBERT BALLARD’S EXPLORATION VESSEL NAUTILUS @ THE NESMITH LIBRARY
Join us at the Nesmith Library Monday, July 17th at 1pm for a live interaction via live feed with educators and crew of the exploration vessel Nautilus. This is a great opportunity for Windham middle and high school students to participate in groundbreaking STEM initiative exploring deep-sea biology, geology, and archaeology in the Eastern Pacific.
The afternoon will begin with the live stream Q & A session with crew aboard the E/V Nautilus while they explore and map the ocean floor of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary off the coast of Californian. We will follow up with a companion ocean interactive presentation with a UNH docent.
Seventeen educators and twenty-two students from around the world have been selected from a competitive pool of applicants by the Ocean Exploration Trust (OET) to participate at sea during the 2016 Nautilus Exploration Program expedition. OET, a nonprofit founded by Dr. Robert Ballard in 2008, has the mission to explore the ocean, seeking out new discoveries in the fields of geology, biology, maritime history, archaeology, physics, and chemistry while pushing the boundaries of STEM education and technological innovation. The selected educators and students hail from schools, universities, after-school programs, science centers, aquaria, and non-profit organizations in twenty states in the US and Australia. They will join the Nautilus Corps of Exploration during sea-going expeditions from May through September in the Eastern Pacific
