Chevron named as the Presenting Sponsor for
Maritime Museum’s 2014 Aquatic Robotics Summer Program
The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum has announced that Chevron will once again support its Aquatic Robotics Summer Program. The highly-successful North Shore educational camp encourages children to develop an appreciation for the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math – or STEAM – by building their own underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles, or ROVs. The initiative will celebrate its 5th year with enhanced programming and equipment thanks to Chevron’s participation as the presenting sponsor.
Maritime Museum Director Don Lynch said he was delighted that Chevron had again agreed to back the camp: “This is a significant partnership for Aquatic Robotics and reflects the growth of the program. Now in its 5th year – with Chevron’s help – the camp continues to expand both in the number of campers and in the enhanced level of instruction and equipment.”
“At the end of the weeklong program, each camper will bring home their own working underwater robot, knowledge of robotics and the industries that use them, and memories of an unforgettable experience,” said Chevron’s General Manager of Public Affairs Sakari Morrison. “Supporting Aquatic Robotics is part of Chevron’s on-going commitment to science, technology, engineering, arts and math education in the region.”
For three weeks each summer, the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum offers children ages 10-17 the unique opportunity to build the underwater robots. Campers become critical thinkers, increasing their science literacy, thus enabling the next generation of innovators. Kids will explore the use and function of underwater robotics in today’s workplaces, especially in the Gulf of Mexico. They will each build and test-drive a Remotely Operated Vehicle, complete with a camera, monitor, and a light. Field trips, presentations, and ROV competitions are all elements of the camp.
The Aquatic Robotics Summer Program at the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum is comprised of 3 one week sessions that run from 9:00am- 4:00pm, Monday- Friday, June 9-13, June 23-27, and July 7-11. For more information or to register visit: lpbmm.org or call (985) 845.9200.
