Club members will design the ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) using Fusion 360. Design activities include:
Building test devices
Learning about buoyancy
Learning how to manage a team
Club members will use a laser cutter to build a watertight box for the electronics out of acrylic, and a 3D printer to create parts for the ROV
Each club member will have a role on one of three engineering teams: hardware, software and testing
Everyone also has a business role so they can hone entrepreneurial skills
All club members will have the opportunity to compete in the 2024 MATE ROV regional competition
No previous experience required! We'll provide all training and equipment

Sign up to be a mentor and support one of our robotics teams! Our clubs will have the opportunity to competing in the MATE Underwater Robotics Competition. Each year 100s of teams from around the world build ROVs to complete a set of tasks that simulate real world ROVs - searching for ship wrecks, surveying and repairing coral reefs, maintaining underwater power lines and supporting aqua culture.
Experience not required - just bring your growth mindset and encouraging attitude!
Mentors and volunteers will be required to obtain fingerprint clearance.
