This workshop provides 4-H Program Instructors,  teachers, and volunteers, an introduction to the skills and experiences they need to incorporate marine science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) topics into their projects, clubs or classrooms.

The 2015 Basic Level ROV Workshop will provide a forum for non-formal and formal educators, especially those interested in participating in future underwater robotics (ROV) competitions.

Participants will have the opportunity to design, build, and test drive their own ROV. The session will begin with a brief presentation outlining the basics of ROV construction, what they are used for and careers in marine technology. Participants will then work in teams to build a kit ROV and pilot the vehicle through underwater mission tasks.

Cost: $10 per person
