30 June - 4 July 2009 - SERPENT at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition
What a week! The SERPENT project has been very popular with a constant stream of visitors hugely enjoying our amazing Marine Simulation LLC™ ROVsim® Deep Seas Simulator. We suspect the comfy racing chair on the simulator helped - most visitors were really grateful to take the weight off after wandering around the upstairs exhibits and especially on the hotter days, loved the cool of our downstairs exhibition area. Thanks to all our visitors who asked some very interesting and thought-provoking questions about the project. The show went on until Saturday for the first time this year, so it was great to see plenty of families enjoying an exciting and educational day out at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.
