Exploring the Deep - April 10, 2018
Join us April 10th for an evening at National Geographic! We will be heading over to their headquarters to see ocean engineer Grace Young talk about the technologies that she is helping to develop to better explore the ocean.
“Ocean engineer Grace Young, National Geographic Explorer, has lived underwater in her quest to better understand and protect the sea. View stunning imagery of the marine life she’s encountered, and learn how the cutting-edge technologies she’s developing are transforming the ways we see and explore the ocean.
“An ocean engineer, aquanaut, and National Geographic Emerging Explorer, GRACE C. YOUNG has developed technologies that help us better understand the ocean, including underwater robots and camera systems that record fish populations, 3-D map ice shelves and coral reefs, and photograph marine life in ways the human eye cannot see. She’s developed technology for NASA, CERN, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. She’s currently refurbishing a deep-sea submarine for manned expeditions into the ocean’s unexplored depths. A graduate of MIT with a degree in mechanical and ocean engineering, Grace is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Oxford University. In 2014, she spent 15 days living underwater in the Aquarius Reef Base as the youngest aquanaut on Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31.”
