First Lego League Teams Get Help from WHOI


Many FIRST LEGO League teams contacted WHOI for information to help with their Ocean Odyssey projects. To help as many people as possible, WHOI hosted First Lego League teams at WHOI for a half-day of scientific presentations on current problems in oceanographic research.

On Tuesday, November 15, 2005, from 1 pm - 4 pm, 160 students and their team leaders came to WHOI's Redfield Auditorium to learn about the latest ocean science research problems from some of the world's leading investigators.

Topics included:
  • Dangers to whales in the North Atlantic
  • Oil spills
  • Exploring hydrothermal vent systems
  • Predicting hurricanes
  • Ship wrecks

Because space was limited, teams were selected on a "first-come-first-served" basis. All the science presentations can be viewed in the Virtual Visit section of this site.
