Marine Biotechnology Fieldwork

During the course of their educational experience at MassBay, students become certified  to SCUBA dive, operate a submersible robot, perform experiments in the field, and develop survival skills necessary for marine research. Twice a year, our program travels to Monserrat in the Caribbean to further hone their skills in the marine biotechnology field.

Students participate in internships from the New England Aquarium to Barbados.

During the Spring Term of 2010, students from the Marine Biotech Program have been testing and improving upon our model of the Seaperch submersible robot designed by MIT. Our modifications have made it more maneuverable in the field.
