he Bermuda 100 Challenge launched in March 2017 will document at least 100 shipwreck sites and natural habitats in the waters surrounding Bermuda. UC San Diego researchers from the Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology (CISA3) and Cultural Heritage Engineering and Innovation Initiative (CHEI) will collaborate with Bermuda authorities including the Custodian of Historic Wrecks and make the growing digital archive, including 3D video reconstructions and interactive computer models, available online to the public worldwide. To that end, donors are invited to give directly to the Bermuda 100 Expedition Fund and to provide support for this ambitious campaign to document at least 100 ships, artifacts and culturally significant sites in Bermuda.
Your investment in the Bermuda 100 Expedition Fund advances new methods of discovery and preservation of our marine cultural heritage for future generations. All philanthropic gifts – 100% – will be directed to:
Supporting graduate students through exploration and expedition fellowships to work on the Bermuda 100 Challenge;
Creating research opportunities to do field and lab work, as well as hands-on experience using advanced technologies to document and study Bermuda’s cultural patrimony; and
Providing flexible funding to meet the greatest needs for innovation and discovery through cultural heritage engineering.
