Sound Water Stewards Monthly Member Meeting | University of Washington Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle Team
March 14, 2022
Join us for our Sound Water Stewards monthly member meeting with the University of Washington’s Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle Team (UW ROV). We are excited to have the UW ROV team talk about their Remote Operated Vehicle they are building. They will be competing with for the MATE ROV competition. The MATE ROV Competition uses remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to inspire and challenge students! Students learn and creatively apply science, technology, and math (STEM) to solve real-world problems and strengthen their critical thinking, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
The UW ROV team will design, build, and compete with underwater robots in the international MATE ROVCompetition. Sound Water Stewards are working with the team for possibilities of seeing the ROV in person, in action in the name of science and outreach education in the spring/summer. *Stay tuned for more details.
