My name is Mark Saldaa, and I am a student in Ms. Shield’s 7th Grade Science class. After our school’s trip to Woods Hole, I became greatly interested in the technology and mechanics behind the Alvin, ABE, and the instruments they use. Combined with my interest of engineering and technology, I was itching to find out a little more. More specifically, how and who developed the technology used by you and your fellow scientists? I am under the impression that many (if not all) of the technology was designed by and specifically for the Woods Hole team, but how many people did this take, and how long? Were you inspired by other similar inventions?

How has this technology evolved since it was first invented? Thank you very much for devoting the time to read this email, and I hope the team has a great expedition!!
