Back in October, we told you on this program about a team of students at Stockbridge High School in rural Ingham County who build robots. The Stockbridge students build underwater robots that search for downed World War Two aircraft in the South Pacific. Now, some of the kids are off on another expedition where it’s considerably warmer than it is here.

Current State's Kevin Lavery reports that they're in Key Largo, Florida. Several of the students are in an underwater chamber about 25 feet below the ocean surface. It’s part of the MarineLab Undersea Laboratory in Key Largo.
