Aquatic Robotics Camp

Get Your Feet Wet

Explore the engineering of navigating on and under the water.

Explore the engineering of navigating on and under the water. We will build the mechanisms and electronics that affect propulsion while we build several aquatic vehicles, including boats and Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs). We will also build buoys used to measure specific qualities of water. Through our partnership with the Einstein Project which is located in the Brown County STEM Innovation Center we are able to support youth that want to explore!
