National Geographic engineer Alan Turchik has spent the last four years designing and building robotic equipment for photographers and explorers with National Geographic’s Remote Imaging Group. In this post, he describes some ways that robots are used to explore the deep ocean.
This summer, National Geographic invites you to build your own robotic solution to explore an extreme place you cannot or should not go! Submit your own robotic solution to National Geographic by August 1, for a movie ticket voucher to ROBOTS 3D* and the chance to have your solution published in a new National Geographic Kids book, Everything Robotics! Visit NatGeoEd.org/NGX for more challenges and information.
