Local students are being introduced to some of the opportunities available in ocean science in a special event at the Johnson GEO Centre today.
Several schools are taking part in the series at the Johnson Geo Centre both in person and via the internet. Students are learning about Ocean Science and Technology happening in the province, from scientists and entrepreneurs working in the field.
Students are hearing about the Twillingate-based autonomous vehicle, called the SeaDragon, that tracks and profiles icebergs.
They are learning from Clarenville-based entrepreneurs who run SUBC Imaging and local tech company Agile Sensors is also presenting.
John Pearce, a Grade 9 student at Lakecrest Academy, says he’s discovering new possibilities for the future through interacting with industry professionals.
