More than 20 students and 2 teachers from Rockport Middle School in MA participated in the first of two field studies to learn first-hand about their local watershed. They built and launch remote operated vehicles (ROVs) in Gloucester Harbor with the help of teachers, staff of the Maritime Heritage Center and NOAA and a few guests. These studies are part of a 3-year science education project offered by the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center and the Massachusetts Audubon Society with support through NOAA’s BWET program.
