What a great day on the water today! We got a lot accomplished and are ready to officially head out to Conch Reef, home of the Aquarius underwater habitat tomorrow...if the weather holds.
Tune in tomorrow (Thursday, 8/20/09) at 2:00pm and 7:00pm EDT for two separate real-time broadcasts of the Conch Reef 2009 Expedition. The 2:00pm broadcast will focus on Aquarius as an educational tool; how teachers can use the habitat in all disciplines of science and increase ocean literacy, while students can use Aquarius as a springboard into the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses.
The evening broadcast will take a more detailed look at the Conch Reef Expedition, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) technology and other projects taking place in and around Aquarius.
So please join us at 2pm and 7pm and bring a friend!
