Mrs. Hendrickson's 7th-grade science students piloted an online learning experience with the Monterey Bay Aquarium. During the lesson, students learned how deep sea exploration uses ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicles) to collect samples where humans cannot go. The students operated a robotic arm remotely to collect samples like those that scientists would collect on research expeditions. They then discussed the difficulties of using the robotic arm and learned how collaboration and cooperation are vital parts to successful missions. AHN looks forward to future learning opportunities with the Monterey Bay Aquarium!
