PORT CITIES OF THE FUTURE: Commerce, Entertainment, Health, and Safety

MATE’s international student underwater robotics (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) competition consists of an international event and a network of 28 (and growing!) regional contests that take place across the United States and in Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Egypt, Russia, Turkey, and Bermuda. Student teams from upper elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, home schools, community colleges, universities, and community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club and 4-H, participate.

The 2017 MATE International ROV competition will take place Friday, June 23rd - Sunday, June 25th at Long Beach City College.


STEM Journey and MATE Practice Day: March 4, 2017

In addition to the STEM Journey event, we will have set up a pool and informational session for any teams and mentors who wish to attend.  If you are unfamiliar with the facility, this can give you a chance to test your vehicle in the competition pool.  If your vehicle is not ready, no problem.  Judges and volunteers from the regional competition will be available to anyswer any questions that you may have.  Hope to see you there!
