This Summer
What is MATE ROV?
Why Join
the Robotics Club?
Enlist members
Increase membership
Partner with Intro Engineering Class
Begin Construction

ROV Teams and Competition
Not Autonomous - Operated from the surface
Perform Real World Tasks
Science experiment maintenance
Hazardous observations (reefs, volcanoes, Arctic)
Wreck investigation (Titanic, Great Lakes, WWII Ships)
Oil spill evaluation and containment
Drones of the Ocean

ROV Competition
Ridgeview Robotics
The mission of the MATE Center is to provide the marine technical workforce with appropriately educated workers and to use marine technology to create interest in and improve STEM education.
Marine Advanced Technology Education

Students form corporations
Design, build, test, demonstrate ROV
Present as technical sales pitch
Compete to perform missions
MATE ROV Competition
Student retention
Multiple faculty members
Involved parents
Consistent funding
Space and camaraderie
Self-Sustaining Club

Identify targets
Visit local companies
Call or write national companies
Plan school fundraisers (Friday pizza?)
Brainstorm other ideas for money

Create corporate structure
Designate rough teams

Review past tech reports
Identify successful systems
Diagnose dead end ideas
