STEM ECHS underwater robotics team advances to international competition

The STEM Early College HS robotics team took part in the 2017 Marine Advanced Technology Education underwater robotics regional competition, also known as MATE, at San Jacinto College on May 13.

The team did not disappoint as they won second place and advanced to the 16th Annual MATE International ROV Competition taking place June 23 – June 25 in Long Beach, California. This is the farthest competition the school has qualified for.

STEM ECHS students will be competing along with top teams from across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Egypt, Russia, Turkey and Bermuda.

The MATE competition requires students to think of themselves as entrepreneurs. They essentially transform their teams into companies that manufacture, market and sell products.  In addition to engineering their ROVs, the students must prepare technical reports and engineering presentations. They deliver these to working professionals who serve as competition judges.

Good luck, Rattlers!
