Time to Swim!

The Aqua Knights took advantage of this week’s warm spring temperatures to put their remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to the test in an outdoor pool. They are preparing for the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) competition, scheduled to take place at Villanova University on May 11th. For the third year in a row, the team has been busy building an underwater robot, installing cameras, and testing its “drivability”. This week, the team members gathered by the pool to put the robot to the test. They tested out some of the missions and adjusted the buoyancy of the robot to allow it to complete them successfully. There is still a lot of work to be done but the team members and coaches are excited and will be ready for the competition. Stay tuned for updates on their progress. #SLSSTEM #RiseAbove #AOBCatholicSchools To learn more about the MATE competition, visit https://www.marinetech.org/rov-competition-2/
