Under the Sea

The Earth’s surface is two thirds water. We know more about the moon than we know about the bottom of our oceans. SLS students are learning about the ocean environment and working to solve practical problems faced by the marine workforce. The Aqua Knights team has built a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and spent most of the winter getting ready for the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Regional competition to be held at Villanova University the second week of May.

The MATE ROV competition is about student learning. It is designed to be an event that challenges students to apply the physics, math, electronics, and engineering skills they are learning in the classroom to solving problems from the marine workplace. Take a quick look at this video of their journey. Best of luck Aqua Knights!
