Exploring Deepwater World War II Battlefields in the Pacific Using Emerging Technologies
Exploring Maritime Heritage Careers
It takes a lot of people, with a lot of different expertise and skills, to pull off a project like Exploring Deepwater World War II Battlefields in the Pacific Using Emerging Technologies. This collaborative project included historians, archaeologists, biologists, conservation scientists, photogrammetry specialists, GIS specialists, and technical divers as well as citizen scientists, including members of the Northern Mariana Islands local and veteran communities.
To share the excitement of their work and educate the public about research, management, and preservation career opportunities, this team produced a series of videos focused on different aspects of their project. Each video features one of the team members introducing themselves and their role in the project and providing advice to young people who may want to pursue related careers.
These videos will be part of a traveling educational exhibit for museums, community centers, libraries, and schools in the Northern Mariana Islands to reach school children who might not otherwise be aware of these submerged archaeological sites and the career opportunities they offer. The videos are also available as a playlist on the Ships of Discovery’s YouTube channel.
