ROVs in Indonesia: An ISEA-NMC Connection
Monday, October 22, 2018
Alicia Symanski and Clayton Harbin are former Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) interns who were instrumental in building the ISEA underwater ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) education program. They are also current NMC students who went to Indonesia this spring to participate in a baseline study on the water quality and coral reefs in Bunaken National Marine Park, using ROVs. They come together this evening to share their experience in Indonesia and talk about the ways being an NMC student helped them at ISEA and how being an ISEA employee influenced their time at NMC. This is a story about how internships, education, technology, and field research come together for water protection.
