Know of an Intro to Underwater ROV Video?


#1

I'm a middle school teacher and am wondering if anyone knows of a good video to introduce students to underwater exploration, ROV, etc. We will be embarking on our OpenROV project this spring and a video would be a good way to quickly give students some info about the field. I'd appreciate any leads!

Hi Maureen! A great place to start is here: http://www.vims.edu/cbnerr/_docs/discovery_labs/ROV.pdf This Powerpoint has embedded videos as well and is a great place to start.

I also highly recommend this website: http://www.immersionlearning.org/games Click on the game called My ROV. It is well done, challenging and engaging ~ however it is also a great introduction to basic concepts like buoyancy and structure.

Hope this helps! Erica

These are great resources. I like the Immersion sites videos, too.
