In Labs 1-6, students construct and test a SeaPerch II Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).
Labs 7-14 are devoted to the final project, in which students design and build an ROV outfitted with the necessary instrumentation to map and investigate a simulated hydrothermal vent field in a pool. This project will give students a chance to collect data about the field from the sensors they build themselves. After the pool trials, students will venture to WHOI to "field test" our ROV.
