Students to Host Aquatic ROV Demo Days at 2015 Great NYS Fair

Posted by Kara Lynn Dunn 0 Comments

Syracuse, NY; August 29, 2015.  New York Sea Grant, the Great New York State Fair, and the Great Lakes Research Consortium are pleased to announce the schedule of in-water ROV Demo Days presented by four area school districts and SUNY Oswego at the 2015 Great New York State Fair. 
The 10am to 4pm demonstrations are part of The Lakes of NY: Over, Under, On and Through, 21st Century Technologies Exhibit coordinated by NY Sea Grant with components on land and in the reflecting pool at the Mini NY State Park at the 2015 Fair.
Middle school, high school and college students have built ROVs: remotely operated vehicles, and will demonstrate them in the reflecting pool of the mini-NY State Park at the Fair as follows:
. Monday, August 31: Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School
. Tuesday, September 1: Chittenango Central School
. Wednesday, September 2: Cicero-North Syracuse Central School
. Friday, September 4: Central Square Central School
. Saturday, September 5: State University of New York at Oswego.
The students are using SeaPerch ROV kits developed in partnership with the Office of Naval Research, which coordinates the science and technology programs of the U.S Navy and Marine Corps. Science, technology, engineering and math educators and robotics classes nationwide used the kits as educational tools.
The students will maneuver the ROVs to locate underwater artifacts and artificial renderings of aquatic invasive species in the pool. Images will be transmitted to a large viewing screen in the exhibit tent.
‘These ROV Demo Days provide Fair visitors a closeup look at technology and its practical application for understanding the unique water resources of New York State,’ said New York Sea Grant Coastal Recreation and Tourism Specialist Dave White, associate director of the Great Lakes Research Consortium, and coordinator of the Lakes of NY Exhibit.
Other components of the Lakes of NY exhibit include the 2015 Discover Clean and Safe Boating educational vessel, a Great Lakes Research Consortium (GLRC) weather-sensing buoy, and information on aerial drones being used for aquatic invasive species research in Western NY. To see real-time data on the air temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, and solar radiation index from the GLRC buoy, go to www.esf.edu/shipwreck.
