Classroom Under the Sea

Classroom Under the Sea | Undersea Exploration | Scoop.it
Ron Peters's insight:

World Record attempt at Living Under The Sea.  

“This fall, Roane State associate professor of biology Bruce Cantrell and adjunct instructor Jessica Fain plan to live and work under the sea for 72 days. While underwater, Cantrell and Fain will offer the most unique educational experience in the college's history and raise awareness of issues affecting the oceans. They will host a weekly program featuring interviews with leading scientists and explorers, covering topics such as conservation, undersea exploration and more. Roane State students in Cantrell's fall online biology class will have an especially interesting experience; while they take the course online, their professor will be leading it from the floor of the lagoon at the Marine Resources Development Foundation's facilities in Key Largo, Fla.”

 

“Where Bruce and Jessica Will Live?

“Bruce and Jessica will stay in Jules' Undersea Lodge. Located 21 feet below the surface of the sea at the Marine Resources Development Foundation, the underwater habitat features a wet room, two bedrooms and a common room. For safety, the facility is monitored at all times.”

 

It should be noted that while they are conducting research and educational outreach, they will also be challenging a long standing world record, currently held by Rick Presley, who in 1992 stayed in an undersea Laboratory (at ambient pressure) for 69 days and 19 minutes.  Again, the planned stay for Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain is planned for 72 days.   For more information please visit their website at…:  http://www.roanestate.edu/classroomunderthesea/
