The Sea Rocket

If you’ve been keeping up with our newsletter, you’ve probably seen something about the Sea Rocket project our Maritime Skills students have been working on in partnership with Ocean explorer and submersible inventor Graham Hawkes (you can learn more about Hawkes and the Sea Rocket here).

Our students fabricated the parts and assembled the rockets. Now, they’re in the testing phase. The video below shows footage from the first drop. On the left, you can see the footage taken by the GoPro attached to the bottom of the Sea Rocket. On the right, you can see footage taken by instructor Terry Moore of the Sea Rocket as it is released into the water and comes back up again.
