Nauset Regional Middle School


Deep beneath the surface of the ocean are remnants of an ancient world and creatures that you’ve never dreamed of. Join Nauset Regional Middle School science teacher Amy Fleischer as she relates her 22-day voyage on board Dr. Robert Ballard’s Exploration Vessel Nautilus of the Channel Islands this past July. Amy will share the stories and videos from the exploration of ancient submerged shorelines, sea caves, and relic coral reefs, as well as encounters with sharks, rays, whales, sea lions, fish, and an incredible array of invertebrates. You will also interact live with members of the Corps of Exploration currently on board the ship through the magic of telepresence.

Equipped with the Remotely Operated Vehicles Hercules and Argus, a prototype Autonomous Surface Vehicle from the University of New Hampshire, and new mapping technology from the University of Rhode Island, Nautilus is currently exploring the depths of the ocean in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
