Atlantas Marine support Black Sea MAP STEM Scholar Programme 2017

​Atlantas Marine are proud to be supporting the Black Sea MAP (Marine Archaeology Project) STEM Scholar Programme 2017. STEM Scholars will travel on a journey of discovery through thousands of years from the dawn of human life to recent history as they explore deep below the surface of the Black Sea. They will be joining one of the largest multi-disciplinary maritime archaeology projects ever attempted.

Working with the expedition’s international team of researchers, STEM research questions will be identified about sea-level change, marine palaeo-climates and marine archaeology along the Bulgarian Black Sea littoral (coastal environment).

Sixteen high potential students, who wouldn’t normally get access to such experiences, will be carefully selected as STEM Scholars. Eight Scholars will carry out an onboard project and eight will be placed in an onshore project.

Atlantas Marine were delighted to run a VideoRay ROV workshop for the students in 2016 and look forward to another workshop in 2017. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with and educate the students and to be involved in a project of this scope. For more information, please head to: www.blackseamap.com/application
