MATE’s ROV Competitions – DIVE IN!
31 March 2011
The MATE Center coordinates an international student ROV competition and a network of 20 regional ROV contests that take place across US and in Canada, Hong Kong, and Scotland. Student teams from middle schools, high schools, home schools, community colleges, and universities participate in the events, which consist of different "classes” that vary depending on the sophistication of the ROVs and the mission requirements.
In addition to being fun and educational, these competitions connect students and educators with employers and working professionals from marine industries, highlight marine-related career opportunities, and promote the development of technical, problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork skills.
