Upcoming Lectures
corey jaskolski"Exploring the Deep" with Corey Jaskolski
Thursday, October 21, 2021, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Corey has spent much of his career building new technologies for exploring the world’s most amazing places, many of which have been underwater. His work has taken him scuba diving in the frigid waters of Antarctica, 12,500 feet deep in a three-man submarine to explore Titanic, 3D-scanning the skulls of Maya human sacrifice victims in flooded caves, and shark diving. To explore these underwater sites, Corey has built robotic camera systems, advanced robotic power systems, 3D scanners, and other one-of-a-kind tools. In this presentation, Corey will share some of his adventures and behind-the-scenes stories from the deep!

6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Social hour* with bar service (credit/debit only) on MPM's First Floor
