Under Water Robot

This workshop is an innovative robotics program that incorporates experimental learning processes to increase youth’s knowledge and skills related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Through the experimental learning process of building an underwater Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV), youth are taught science concepts while strengthening life skills such as team-work, critical thinking and goal setting.
