Marine Technology Student: Marine Farming

Marine Technology Student: Marine Farming

In this video adapted from Pathways to Technology, learn how a degree in marine technology helped one student go from working at a marine farming company to becoming a partner in that company. Trevor Fay uses the GPS/GIS technology he studied in school to farm the red abalone, tracking their locations and monitoring their population. This technology helps marine farmers maintain healthy populations of sea creatures and understand more about the important ecosystem of the ocean. The video runs 4:18 and is accompanied by a background essay, standards alignment, and discussion questions.
