Strange Technology with Joe Valencic

Joe joins us to talk about strange and unique adaptations of technologies to further scientific research and a few less-scientific applications. Joe’s work extends to miniature camera systems, drones capable of flying and submersing in water, and a robotic camel jockey!

Joe Valencic, member #1109, is a Professor of Marine Science and Technology. He spent three seasons in the Antarctic with his Scripps team where they set a world record for the southern-most scuba dive. He was a producer for Discovery Channel’s “Lost Underwater Wrecks of WWII in Palau”, as well as working on the Discovery Channel special “In the Mind of the Demon”, on great white sharks.

This program was organized by Kendall Hudson, member #1206.
