Mike Irvine, a master's student at the University of Victoria, defended his master's of education thesis under water to demonstrate how underwater technology can foster better appreciation of marine science.

Irvine used a mask with communications gear to enable the members of his thesis committee to ask him questions from a nearby pier via teleconference.

Irvine's master's of education thesis is about connecting students to the oceans using underwater cameras in order to motivate students to engage in marine science and marine awareness.

His thesis is entitled: "Underwater web cameras as a tool to engage students in the exploration and discovery of ocean literacy"
