Be an Underwater Survivor 

Presenter: Lloyd Godson  Duration: 30-45min Hangout

Event Overview:

Lloyd Godson is an ambassador for ocean exploration and is committed to encouraging more young Australians to undertake STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) studies and careers. He loves to live his wild ideas by putting them to the test in the real world, sharing the excitement of exploration and adventure with students and public audiences around the world. He has spent two weeks in Antarctica, a total of one month living underwater, propelled himself through the Greek islands in a human-powered submarine and holds the Guinness World Records for the most electricity generated by pedaling underwater. In 2007, Lloyd received the coveted Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year award. Most recently, Lloyd has been selected to participate in the Nautilus Exploration Program as a Science Communication Fellow (SCF).

For Science week 2015 Lloyd will be at the Australian National Maritime Museum testing his prototype underwater habitat in preparation for living underwater at the museum in the near future. Join Lloyd at the Australian National Maritime Museum for another in the engaging Inspiring Stories series as he shares his amazing scientific adventures

Part of the Australian National Maritime Museums Inspiring Stories series is about connecting students with people who are doing extraordinary things to inspire students to think out of the box and to consider other alternatives in their careers/ life choices. The presentations allows the speakers to share with the students why they have chosen or followed the path they have taken, experiences they have had and what they hope to achieve in the future.
