Hands-on Science

WHOI assistant scientist Erin Fischell showed visiting member of a U.S. Army youth leadership group some of the autonomous underwater vehicles she uses in her research. Fischell, who graduated from the MIT-WHOI Joint Program recently, specializes in robotic systems made up of several individual vehicles that are able to adapt to their surrounding and work together to complete a mission. She was one of several WHOI investigators awarded a Department of Energy grant recently to advance the use of kelp in biofuel production. (Photo by Ken Kostel, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
