A little off season research

Lisa Waidner is busy collating data from her water collections and we are busy planning and preparing for STEAM2017 Exhibition and Colloquium coming up in February. The water is too cold in December anyway, so we took a little ‘research’ trip to the Florida Keys, where I did some digging around the History of Diving Museum.

I discovered that a number of impressive ‘hard’ suits likeĀ the Oceaneering JIM Suit was developed in facilities on theĀ Florida panhandle.

This is my geek dream!!!

There were plenty of fascinating devices homebrew to highly manufactured. I think I feel some re-creationist tendencies brewing!
