Watching the robot on the computer screen "swim" underwater was fascinating, and the kids loved watching the crew try to navigate the robot's claws to pick up the pieces of trash/marine debris. The crew even allowed the boys to help them record the findings, along with using the net to capture the debris from the robot's claws!
Along with the excitement over the Rozalia Project, we ended this week at the river on a high note, by catching lots and lots of sunfish! One of the girls decided to try something new for bait -- sliced ham, that she brought from home. Fortunately, the fish bought in, which was good news for the kids. Next week promises to bring even more exciting adventures full of eels, sunfish, crabs ... and perhaps even more ham bait?!
