Project Shiphunt, developed by Sony and Intel Corp., began in May when five ambitious high school students from Arthur Hill High School in Saginaw, Michigan embarked on the adventure of a lifetime in the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Their mission: hunt for a historically meaningful sunken ship, investigate its identity, and document the journey for future generations. Led by world-renowned nautical archaeologist, Dr. James Delgado, the student team worked side by side with scientists and historians from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.
The first web film "Shipwreck Alley" introduces the team and its objectives. The second film, "Discovering the M.F. Merrick", showcases their search successes.
