Build an ROV with WHOI engineer Megan Carroll!

Great Pond Foundation is pleased to be offering a STEM class in robotics this summer at the Edgartown School, July 10th to July 14th 2017 from 1 pm (promptly) to 4:30 pm in their science lab. Students will spend the first four days building the SeaPerch ROV in the classroom. On the last day, students will be taken to a private pool to test out their built vehicles.

The class is open to students finishing the fifth grade through students in the twelfth grade.

The Summer camp will give middle school and high school students an opportunity to do a hands on project that introduces mechanical design, construction, problem solving, and teamwork skills. In the program, students will build the ROV (remotely operated vehicle) following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts. They will learn about robotics, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The ROVs will be tested and the students will launch the vehicles in a pool where they will perform tasks in the pool that test the performance and design of the vehicles. There will be 3-4 students per ROV build.

Group size: 15 students, 5 middle school, 10 high school.

Date: July 10th-14th afternoons 1:00-4:30 pm

Instructor: WHOI Research Engineer, Megan Carroll

Cost: $400.00, some scholarships available
