Robotics at the Sea Floor- A Simulation. This lesson helps students create robots that would complete missions at the sea floor and would also explore the different career paths available to students .

We wanted to know howmarine biologists, oceanographers, robotic engineers, computer engineers, Ichthyologists, hydrographers and cartographers respond to emergencies like an oil spill?
We created robots using The Challenge Kit from Legos ( or you can create paper/cardboard robots if your teacher does not teach robotics). These robots will complete missions that will not only allow you to use programming skills but also explore career opportunities.
water column for the temperature sensor to test:
warm water represents the top of the water column;
cool water represents the middle of the water column;
and ice cold water will represent the bottom of the ocean
floor.) Write a report of your findings and give the data of
the temperature at the top, middle and bottom of the
water column. Give temperatures in both Fahrenheit
(Use legos to “build” fish such as squid, whales, MahiMahi, dolphin, red snapper, angel fish, amberjack, cobia, trigger fish, sucker fish, etc.)
