I would like to share a project based learning activity that uses remotely operated submersible vehicles (ROV's) to teach students content from a physics class or physical science course. This is based on the SeaPerch project and uses materials from that program.

Teaching physics offers exceptional oportunites to give the students a feel for science through the application of princples learned in course content with hands on activities. For me the second half of a physic course presented significant challenges with getting students interested with electricity and magentism. As a result I desperate saught a task that I could use to tie the course togather. That was when I was introduced to the SeaPerch project. The SeaPerch project is an initiative that focused on increasing the number of young people that pursue a field related to Science,  Technology, Engineering, and Science.
