Intro to ROVs This is an introductory lesson to familiarize students with how ROVs are built and why ROVs are used.Students will observe a variety of deep sea organisms using MBARI YouTube videos and the MBARI Deep Sea guide. Students will explore the subject of why and how ROVs are used to collect data regarding the deep sea. Students will work to design a model ROV that will be used in a later lesson to build a functioning ROV.
