Maurice Tivey lead a brainstorming session for the college
students who were charged with inventing an underwater adhesives
applicator which could apply adhesive to ocean floor rocks.
Before the brainstorming session, Dr. Tivey gave the students
a brief tutorial on types of rocks found on the ocean floor.
Dr. Tivey also sent e-mail reports
to the students via satellite link later in the semester
when he was on a research expedition with Alvin.
