Hi! Please forward this opportunity to anyone that you think might be
interested! I got to work there, and it's an amazing experience. The leader
of this project, Doug Jackson, is an incredible, nice person with a
powerful drive to take on this immense project!

An open-source, community built research vessel seeks individuals with
programming experience to help create an open exploration submarine drone.
They welcome artists and technologists of all sorts to join their massive
project building a scientific ocean research vessel from scratch!

Throughout July and August, the SV Seeker crew is specifically looking for
individuals to come help work on their professional submarine drone.The
project is looking for individuals with Arduino experience.
You will get to learn all kinds of skills involved with building
professional scientific research vessels from scratch. You will probably
get to learn some metal-working, such as MIG Aluminum welding, along with
testing seals, sensors, and control systems.

Your food and housing will be covered during your stay. You just need to
provide your own transportation to get there there.

Contact here to set up a time to join:

vessel here:

Note: Beyond august, they are still also always looking for engineers,
artists, programmers, welders, and basically anyone interested in joining
the project


Tulsa Oklahoma, USA (You can actually see the massive boat they are
building from Satellite imagery on maps!)
