Join us at the New England Regional Marine Advance Technology Education (MATE) Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) competition this Saturday hosted by Sandwich STEM Academy at Sandwich High School. Competitions will be taking place in the pool from 9am-1pm and a variety of hands-hand exhibits and STEM resources will be available in the Ocean Technology exposition, located in the corridor leading up to the pool. Come on by and join the fun!
SATURDAY MAY 6 - COME ONE! COME ALL!
The Sandwich STEM Academy is once again hosting the New England Regional MATE (Marine Advanced Technology Education) ROV (r...emotely operated vehicle) Competition at the high school swimming pool.
The event takes place on Saturday, May 6 beginning around 9:00 AM through early afternoon. Middle and High School students from several districts will be competing in a series of challenging activities with the equipment that they built.
The STEM Academy Robotics Club led by engineering teacher Ginger Lavelle will have a couple of teams in the competition. There will be around 11 Scout teams (middle school) and 11 Ranger teams (high school).
In addition there will be an Ocean Technology Expo in the corridor leading to the pool during the event. Many organizations and businesses will have their equipment on display including Teledyne Marine and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
This event is free and open to the public and is for all ages. One additional change this year is that there will be underwater cameras projecting the events onto monitors for the visiting public accompanied by a narration of the activities.
I hope that many STEM families past, present and future will be able to attend.
