Bush Blitz RV Investigator 2022 We’re inviting schools to live stream marine scientists this October! (The CSIRO research vessel (RV) Investigator. Source: Tauri Minogue / CSIRO) In October 2022, Bush Blitz is spending 45 days on Research Vessel Investigator, mapping and sampling the underwater seamounts of Australia’s Indian Ocean Territory around Cocos (Keeling) Island. We want to share it with your classroom! Are you a primary or secondary school teacher? Would you like your class to meet scientists who research what lives in the deep, deep sea? This October, Bush Blitz is giving schools around Australia the chance to live stream a “floating classroom”. For the very first time, marine scientists — lead by Museums Victoria — will explore what lives up to 4800m below the sea level in Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories, near Cocos (Keeling) Islands. They’ll be doing this work while aboard the iconic CSIRO research vessel (RV) Investigator. And want to share the adventure with your classroom! Now is your chance!
