Echoes: What Animals Can Teach Scientists

Students study how scientists like Robert Ballard use sonar to investigate the depths of the ocean. They see that some animals have an unusual way of figuring out what is around them in the dark. They study the echolocation capabilities of bats and think about how ocean scientists can learn from these animals to develop deep-sea exploration techniques.
