An Introduction to Underwater Robotics

Grades: 5th – 12th

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive an underwater robot? Since the 1950s ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) have been used for a wide range of military, scientific, and salvage missions. From documenting deep-sea animals to servicing underwater oil structures, ROVs serve as an integral tool in the growing field of Marine Technology. During this program students will become employees of a marine tech company and work in teams to build and test drive an ROV. Their vehicles and engineering skills will then be put to the test in a real-world simulation as students work to cap an underwater oil well that has begun to leak.

(Our testing facility is outdoors, therefore, this program is offered April 1st through November 15th.)

LE2511 Sandy Hook Lighthouse

LE2511 The Sandy Hook Lighthouse

Engineering a Lighthouse

Grades: 4th – 8th

Lighthouses can be found along coastlines throughout the world. They help protect ships from dangers in the water and on the coast, serve as beacons to welcome sailors home, and provide an important link between maritime history and the ever-evolving technology of ocean navigation. During this project-based educational program, students become civil and electrical engineers as they take environmental conditions and budgetary constraints into consideration and work collaboratively to design and build their own working lighthouse model.

Chesapeake Bay: An Estuary in Crisis

Grades: 5th – 9th

The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States. Its watershed encompasses 64,000 square miles, is home to 17,000,000 people, and includes all or portions of six states. The Bay is also home to approximately 3,600 plants and animals and serves as an economic and recreation resource for humans. But the Bay is suffering. During this program, students will examine the resources of the Chesapeake Bay, from the years before early European settlement to today. By exploring the changes in the Bay over time, students will discover the factors that have contributed to its decline. The program concludes with a discussion of the changes students can make in their daily lives to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay, or any other watershed in which they may live.

Hurricanes: Predicting Disaster

Grades: 4th – 9th

Hurricanes are one of the most powerful forces on Earth. During this program, students learn about the characteristics of hurricanes, what causes strengthening or weakening, other natural forces affecting hurricane behavior, and the impact these storms have at sea and on the land. At the conclusion of the program, students will build a model of a hurricane-proof house that can sustain 75 mile-per-hour winds.

The Age of Exploration

Grades: K – 12th

This popular program takes students on an imaginative journey through time. They will explore an era when cartographers were still mapping the world and mariners were discovering new landmasses, thus fueling the desire for knowledge and riches. Museum teachers will lead discussions about the economic and cultural life of the Old World, present spices for hands-on examination, and discuss the importance of these spices to those cultures. Other factors that accelerated the interest in exploration are also examined. Third grade and above will see and handle navigational instruments spanning the period from ancient times to the golden age of sail. Be sure to visit our Ages of Exploration Online Exhibition to learn more about early exploration.

Pirates

Grades: K – 9th

Set sail during the Golden Age of Piracy to learn about the reality of pirates. Students will be introduced to the stereotypical concepts of pirates and discuss where images of hooks, peg legs and eye patches originated. By examining such pirates as Edward Teach, otherwise known as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd and Calico Jack, students will learn about the lives of real pirates. Female pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny are also introduced along with many of the popular weapons used by these “rogues of the seas.” This program is a perfect complement to the reading of Treasure Island or the study of the early colonial period. The program concludes with a discussion about modern day pirates.

Captive Passage: Investigating the Transatlantic Slave Trade

Grades: 5th – 12th

Slavery in the Americas shaped the history, culture, and commerce of four continents over the course of five centuries. During this program, students begin their investigation by discussing the economic, cultural, and racial origins of the transatlantic slave trade in the 15th century. Utilizing primary sources including maps and images along with reproduction objects, we examine the triangle trade as students come to understand the economic impact of slavery on Africa, Europe, and the New World. We then explore the human side of this “peculiar institution” as we examine firsthand accounts written by enslaved Africans, traders, and abolitionist. This program concludes with a discussion of the role slavery played in the development of the Americas.
