Welcome to the MATE 2016 Season

2016 MATE COMPETITION

FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO TO JUPITER'S MOON EUROPA: ROVs EXPLORING INNER AND OUTER SPACE

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, Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Egypt, Russia, and Turkey. 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 competition consists of four different classes that vary depending on the sophistication of the ROVs and the mission requirements.

The 2016 MATE International ROV competition will take place June 23-25 at NASA's Johnson Space Center's Neutral Buoyancy Lab (NBL) in Houston, Texas
