Accelerate STEM learning--and fun--with CalSTEM.org
Kids showing the ROV to Tony Thurmond the State Superintendent of Public Education
At the STEAM conference to show off our idea
Teams learn, build, play and compete together
Live online and recorded instruction--at no cost--accelerates your team's learning.
Start with PVC to build the frame for the underwater robot, also known as the ROV, or remote operated vehicle.
Measure and cut the PVC so it fits right for the ROV frame--always wearing safety gear!
Once the frame is complete, attach the motors and test for buoyance.
Test wiring and power for the motors
Connect the wiring and motors to the PVC frame.
Add the accessory tools, and the ROV is finished-- and ready to compete.
Test ROV performance in the water.
Mission Accomplished! Kids enjoy learning important STEM skills. Now, interested teams are ready to pursue the national MATE ROV competition, sponsored by the National Science Foundation!
