Buzz Scott is President and Brett Curlew the New York Program Director of OceansWide a non-profit educational program whose mission is to put students and scientists together at sea in the Gulf of Maine and other locations in the Northeast. Their team is made up of a dedicated group of scientists, teachers and marine professionals who believe it is important to educate people about the amazing and mysterious world that exists offshore. Their students work with scientists to determine research goals, participate in the actual at-sea research, and write reports on their findings. All of this happens while getting wet on the deck of their research ship.
Oceanswide is presently working with Brookhaven Labs, Hofstra University and a number of schools to bring ROV development and training to Long Island campuses.
