Driving an ROV like Alvin or JASON takes lots of skill like using a joy stick. JASON pilots tell us that it is a lot like a video game but with a really expensive robot! Do you think you would want to drive an ROV?

Also, here’s something really cool!! Remember the story from monday’s activity of how scientists discovered life on the ocean floor? Well, on Ken MacDonald’s website, you can find clips of the actual Alvin footage from that awesome discovery. (You can find a link called “Movies” on the left hand side that will take you to the movie you want.) The movie is called “EPR9N” and the website includes a script that you can read to your students while the movie is playing. Super cool!!
