Middle school members of the Boy and Girls Club of Alpena are invited to participate in a weeklong “shipwreck discovery” program using Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) to identify a recently discovered shipwreck. Club members will work in teams to assemble their ROV, complete missions to discover what historic vessel went down in the wreck and present on their findings. Students will work in teams and use technical and communication skills to understand the responsibilities of marine technology professionals and have the opportunity to interact with personnel in the field.
