MTS ROV Committee Sponsors 2018 MATE ROV Competition

We are proud to once again sponsor this important competition. The Marine Technology Society Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Committee, the National Science Foundation, Teledyne Marine, Eastman, and Tacoma South Sound Sports Commission join a variety of other technology and education-related businesses in their continued support of the MATE International ROV Competition, scheduled for June 21 to 23, at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, WA.

This competition challenges teams of students to design and build an ROV that they operate and simulate solving real-world problems in the bottom of a swimming pool. They're encouraged to develop their technical, teamwork, creative thinking, and problem-solving skills.

The contribution of sponsoring organizations like these not only helps MATE continue to offer this unique learning experience, but it also helps to inspire students to grow, gain confidence, challenge themselves, collaborate, and develop business know-how and an entrepreneurial spirit that will help them excel in their chosen careers.   More...
