In the MATE ROV competition, student teams come together as small companies to design, build, modify and demonstrate an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) built to complete underwater missions.

What is an ROV and How to Join the Competition
ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) are underwater robots designed to perform tasks underwater. They are used in a wide variety of industries and for research purposes. Because of the complexity of these machines, the learning outcomes for students cover a broad spectrum of disciplines.

The Challenge
This competition gives students the opportunity to respond to real-world scenarios with a solution they engineer themselves. Each year the theme changes to challenge new and returning teams to come together to design, build, modify and compete in underwater missions that demonstrate their understanding of the competition brief.

Age Ranges and Competition Categories
There are four categories covering elementary through university. Each distinct category (Scout, Navigator, Ranger, Explorer) has its own requirements and availability for each category will vary depending on the region.
