Further Investigations: Diving Technology

  1. Conduct interviews of scuba divers and ask about what type of technology they use underwater and how they use it safely. Produce a poster for your class that conveys the information you have learned.
     
  2. Investigate underwater habitats. How do divers live underwater for long periods of time? What type of research do they conduct?
     
  3. Create a timeline of scuba technological changes. What do you think have been the most important advances in scuba technology? What do you think the future of scuba will look like?
     
  4. Investigate different submersible vehicles and their daily operating costs. What type of submersible is best for exploring shipwrecks? What type of submersible is best for exploring hydrothermal vents?
