In November 2015 SeaKeepers worked with CARTHE researchers and students from the IMPACT program at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Students were tasked with designing and building their own drifters as part of IMPACT’s summer education program. Fleet Miami hosted everyone onboard the vessel Julia and provided an opportunity for the students to test their drifters alongside CARTHE’s professional drifters in the waters of Biscayne Bay.
