Back to projects

The underwater robotics program works with students across the SCSD to support team work and project based learning. It encourages young individuals to pursue the STEM fields with an additional concentration on Ocean engineering at an early age. Careers in the STEM field have evolved with the use of technology, computers and robots. The funds from this grant will provide the technology necessary for students to learn, utilizing, working collaboratively and using problem solving logic. The purchase of underwater cameras, laptop computers and computer cases will allow students to document and view their robots as they work underwater. Students will capture important information as they explore and design an ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) that will help scientists research the earth’s surface under water.
