Working in teams, students in ROV camp build ROV’s. Remote Operated Vehicles are underwater robots that are piloted from the surface. Each team will design and build a ROV to complete the assigned underwater mission.

At BotBrain® camp you will use BotBrain® Educational Robots to compete in fun real-world challenges like navigating through a maze or working through a “mine field” to detonate the mines (modified mouse traps serve as the mines). Each day will bring a new challenge, and your team’s robot will have to morph to better adapt and compete.
