Recently at Indian Harbour Montessori, Room 22, our 5th and 6th Graders, took a blank Styrofoam head as pictured below, signed each of their names and sent it with Captain Blohm who works offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Once on board the ship, Styrohead was placed in the ship’s ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) which went to a depth of 7,050 feet. In the process, Styrohead shrank because of the pressure, as pictured. The students took measurements before and after Styrohead’s trip and will be charting and graphing the results.
We’d like to thank Captain Blohm for helping us out with our experiment, and for visiting Room 22 with a video presentation of Styrohead’s grand adventure!
