Offshore Safety and Survival Centre, Marine Institute Tour and Applied Research Lectures (No Fee)
Tour on morning of Oct. 12 and lectures in afternoon
The tour will involve a bus ride from Delta hotel to Foxtrap (about 20 minutes outside of St. John’s) to the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre which is a facility that trains thousands of marine and offshore workers each year in safety and survival skills. This facility also serves as our “living lab” for doing applied motor learning research. The tour will include the environmental theatre which can simulate waves, wind, rain, thunder and lighting. This facility is used for marine safety and survival training including Helicopter Underwater Egress Training. The 3D motion helicopter cabin simulator will also be demonstrated. Finally, we will tour the fire field that has oil rig, ship, and helicopter structures that can be set on fire.
Following the tour, members of the Ocean Safety Research Lab (Drs. Heather Carnahan, Liz Sanli Matthew Ray and Desmond Mulligan) will highlight current work. Tentatively, Dr. Gal Ziv, a helicopter pilot with a doctorate in motor learning will present a special lecture on gaze behaviour and aviation. Dr. Ziv is currently a faculty member at Zinman College, Wingate Institute, Israel.
