How do you get people excited about the dark, unexplored corners of our planet — our oceans? For oceanographer Robert Ballard, the answer to this is question simple: bring the mysteries of the deep ocean into the homes and classrooms of millions of people, live.

This summer, three Portland educators, Alfonso Garcia Arriola, Linda Fergusson-Kolmes, and Jenny Woodman, joined Ballard’s Corps of Exploration on board the E/V Nautilus — a 64-meter research vessel outfitted with cutting-edge technology for ocean exploration and education. Using remotely operated and autonomous vehicles in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, the corps visited deep sea coral and sponge communities, underwater volcanoes and so much more.

At this Science on Tap, join Alfonso, Linda, and Jenny to learn about seafloor mapping, otherworldly deep sea organisms, science communication, and slice of life at sea!
