Underwater Robots & Ice Sheets: Science at Ponce City Market

Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market

Georgia Tech will be at Ponce City Farmers Market one Tuesday a month from June to November. Graduates in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and faculty from the Georgia Tech School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences will share with customers and passersby science about our planet that they could apply to their daily lives.

Underwater Robots & Ice Sheets is the third of six programs making up "Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market." The goal of this program is to make people learn about what scientists are making to help study the Antarctic ice sheets from below the ice surface. If you are at the farmers' market you can  

  • learn about unmanned robotic vehicles 
  • ask about how fast ice sheets are melting
  • watch videos taken from under the Antarctic ice 
  • chat with the engineers who designed and operate the robotic vehicles  


Series Schedule
Following are the topics for "Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market" through November, as well as the Georgia Tech volunteers:

The showcase is an initiative of Ph.D. student Tiegan Hobbs. Georgia Tech's science presence at Ponce City Farmers Market was made possible by Hobbs's collaboration with its market manager, Stephanie Luke.
