Sound Water Stewards Monthly Member Meeting | University of Washington Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle Team

March 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

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 ROV Competition. 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.

  1. May 11 – IN-PERSON Meet n Greet / Volunteer Fair & Social Time – at Cama Great Room, with coffee, tea, potluck treats, orange juice.
    • Schedule: Wed, May 11: Setup at 9 am, Fair at 10 am (no formal presentation)
    • Steering Committee will bring refreshments
    • All Leads: please plan to have a booth whether or not you currently need volunteers. The idea is to share what you’re doing and talk with members. Every project, committee or activity doing work in 2022 should have a table to sign people up and talk about what you do. Find the Leads List here: https://soundwaterstewards.org/volunteer-portal/volunteer-basics-communication/
  2. Spotlight on one project – Intertidal Monitoring 2022 Dates & Plans – Dave Brubaker
