This Exploration Vessel is equipped with some of the latest technological systems and is focused on advancing the frontiers of ocean explorations. Students we able to learn about the ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) onboard the vessel, and how scientists are both mapping the seafloor and collecting samples of organisms from the deep depths of the ocean.
