Discovery Hall Programs hosts an annual student ROV competition each spring. Teams of middle and high school students, along with their teachers/mentors, design, build, and test their own ROV before coming to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab to compete against other student teams in a series of scientific missions.
The competition serves as the Northern Gulf Coast regional site for the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) program.
The 2019 Competition will include SCOUT, NAVIGATOR and RANGER class competitions. The competition consists of two mission attempts, a marketing display poster and an oral presentation. The competition will be held over a 3-day weekend beginning on Friday with safety inspections, followed by pool demonstrations (i.e. missions) on Saturday and presentations on Sunday.
SCOUT - $50
