As engineers, we have come to realize how important scientists and engineers will be to make a world with 9 billion people go round.
The Pilot Fish Project blends dozens of technologies and scientific themes, exploration and physical challenge. It is a unique opportunity to pass our passion for engineering and challenge to younger generations. We owe our vocations to fight planes and space crafts of our childhood. Let's hope a more sober midget submarine will do the trick for our kids!
As much data as possible will be posted on the project website: progress news, educational material, real time data during the expedition. But also informative highlights about the fifty or so technical themes identified around the project.
We will rely on education professionals such as those at the National Aquarium of Plymouth, the Grand Aquarium of Saint-Malo and Cité de la Mer of Cherbourg to build multi-themes educational programs, targeting pupils before, during and after the expedition.
Most importantly, the year after the expedition we will organize exhibitions featuring the images and sounds from the Channel along with the submarine in the Aquariums and Discovery Centers, and school that will accept it.
