Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

In a primary science lecture with 100 students and one lecturer, how many cameras are there? The answer is at least 202, on the grounds that almost everyone will have a smartphone or tablet with two cameras and some people will have more than one device. The big question is, how can we utilise this plethora of cameras to learn to teach science? This article discusses the use made of cameras by a lecturer and students to enhance learning in primary science classrooms.
