What the Group Learned
Science is all about learning from experiments, whether the experiments are successful or not. Here are a few things learned during today’s water venture:
- The OpenROV thrusters can handle themselves very well, even in choppy water.
- You never know how the lake might behave. Dress warm and wear waterproof boots.
- If the lake is choppy on the surface, the water is probably kicking up silt down below. Underwater visibility might be limited.
The scouts are planning another tour, perhaps in a calmer body of water. Stay tuned for more updates about Boy Scout Troop 534 and OpenROV!
