BIOS: Ocean Technology Course For Students

May 17, 2022 | 0 Comments

This summer, Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences [BIOS] is offering a week-long training course focused on “emerging ocean technology” for students, and “participation in the program is free; however, students must be nominated by a teacher, mentor, or educator outside the formal classroom.”

A spokesperson said, “This summer, BIOS is adding an exciting hands-on training opportunity through its Mid-Atlantic Robotics IN Education [MARINE’ Program, a core component of the Institute’s Ocean Academy.

“For five days, from July 4 through 8, Bermudian students between the ages of 14 and 16 can learn about emerging ocean technologies and how they are being used to address complex environmental problems.

A spokesperson said, “During the program, students will study a variety of technologies—including autonomous boats, autonomous underwater vehicles, and unmanned aerial vehicles—that scientists use to collect data above, on, and in the ocean. They will learn how each instrument is mobilized, the types of data they collect, and how these data can be interpreted or utilized within environmental models.

“Participation in the program is free; however, students must be nominated by a teacher, mentor, or educator outside the formal classroom. Nominations take about ten minutes and should speak to each student’s abilities in a variety of areas, such as interest in robotics, critical thinking ability, interest in pursuing a career in engineering, and perseverance, among others. Nominations will be accepted until May 26. To view and complete the nomination form, please visit this website.

“Nominees will be interviewed by a collaborative panel at the end of May and 10 candidates will be selected for participation in this training opportunity.

“The program is being run with lead support from RenaissanceRe in partnership with the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University and BIOS’s Mid-Atlantic Glider Initiative and Collaboration [MAGIC] program.”
