Students learn about engineering in remotely operated vehicle competition

DESCRIPTION

Teams from six Milwaukee area high schools and five middle schools were challenged to design, build and operate an ROV to identify an unknown shipwreck recently discovered in the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary waters, collect microbial samples and remove trash and debris from the shipwreck and surrounding area, in a “Remotely Operated Vehicle Competition" in Milwalkee, Wisconsin. Eventually, the hope is that these students want to take physics to a new level.
