Students will get a chance to participate in a new University of Georgia joint SKIO-MAREX STEM activity as the “Choose your Own Adventure” education team (Catherine Edwards, Mare Timmons, and Mary Sweeney-Reeves) visit middle schools in Chatham County.
The activity draws on the operations of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Modena and the oceanic conditions she faces while deployed to missions collecting data, including water temperature, salinity, density, and concentrations of dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, and organic matter. Students will act as scientists who solve problems while navigating through currents and storms to reach a destination in the Atlantic Ocean. The Choose Your Own Adventure AUV project will reach 500 students in Chatham County. The Choose Your Own Adventure program will begin in the classroom and eventually evolve into an outdoor giant board adventure activity to be used at schools.
