Accompanied by WHOI volunteers, students from Perkins School for the Blind toured R/V Knorr on a recent visit. They heard about the bridge from physical oceanographer Amy Bower (right), who invited the students to WHOI and created a special Web site as part of an outreach project to accompany her research.
