ROV Camp

Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) boldly go where human divers cannot. During this two week ROV program, camper-engineers will hone their maker skills to design and build their own underwater robot. They will learn about the industrial and scientific applications of ROVs and develop hands-on skills like soldering, waterproofing, and tool use. Camp culminates with a friendly competition, where campers will pilot their ROVs through challenges based on real-world situations.(Read More)
