MARINE ROV Angelfish Challenge Winners

Last week, seven enthusiastic Clearwater Middle School students and two proud teachers got an experience of a lifetime when they headed to North Rock with BIOS to snorkel and operate their winning Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in the ocean.

The students and teachers of Clearwater Middle School were the overall winners of HSBC Explorer’s  2015 MARINE ROV Angelfish Challenge that occurred on March 8th, 2015. Read more on the BIOS-Research blog

The Challenge brought together 8 local academic bodies with 28 teams in an exciting competition of student-built underwater ROVs.  Over the course of 2 months, students designed, built, and practiced operating their custom ROVs.  All of their hard work was put to the test in the National Sports Centre pool, where students worked in teams to maneuver their custom ROVs through a challenging underwater obstacle course.   Read more about the Mid Atlantic Robotics IN Education (MARINE) program here: /education/marine/.
