Museum of Underwater Archeology Visits!

MHMS Media was pleased to arrange a visit from the director of the Museum of Underwater Archeology. Mr. Kurt Knoerl visited and worked with 6th grade students for a hands on introduction to the investigation, scientific method, and the fun of submerged archaeology.

This interactive lesson show students how underwater archaeological sites are found, mapped, and plotted.

What kind of equipment is used in scuba diving. How scientists use their senses under black water to discover shipwrecks and artifacts.

Students also learned how to use mylar film and a pencil to write underwater!
For more pictures go to our school's Smugmug Digital Photo Gallery!

Thank you Mr. Knoerl for visiting our school and working with our AWEsome kids
