Our 2015 ISR entry, Nautilus, used Talenti gelato containers for the emergency buoy and the buoy housing. We sent photos to Talenti, showing them the unique application for recycled gelato containers. (We also mentioned how much we enjoyed emptying the containers!) Apparently Talenti CEO Steve Gill liked this use of his company's gelato containers. Yesterday, KIDS Chairperson Paola Addamiano-Carts received a huge package in the mail. Talenti kindly sent Team Nautilus some apparel, stickers and coupons. Thank you, Talenti, for supporting our team! We love your gelato!
Today, on Veteran's Day, we were able to go on a GREAT field trip to Phoenix International. Pete LeHardy was our gracious host. Everyone was most impressed by the underwater work Phoenix does: exploration, repair, rescue, search and recovery, etc. It was great to see the remotely operated vehicles firsthand, to understand their features and design parameters, and to meet some of the engineers who make it all happen. Thanks, Mr. LeHardy and crew, for such a wonderful opportunity!
There is always more to learn. Mr. and Mrs. Carts went up to the Stevens Institute of Technology for a tour of the Davidson Laboratory in Hoboken, NJ. Research Associate Michael DeLorme met them at the model basin, gave a wonderful tour and answered so many questions. What a delight to talk with someone who can answer your technical questions without batting an eye!
