Students will design and build a working model of a launch and recovery system from a set of everyday items. The goal is that whatever they develop has safety features that limit swinging on a moving research vessel. Systems must be able to pick up and launch/recover “scientific packages” of varying sizes and weights
and safely place them into the “ocean” and bring them back aboard the vessel.
