Global Underwater Hub STEM challenge
- Scotland and England locations
- Ages 13-14
My Energy Future is supporting Global Underwater Hub to inspire the next generation of subsea talent.
Are you ready to put your problem-solving skills to the test and dive deep into the exciting world of robotics?
Teams of students from across the UK will come together to design and build an Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) using Lego Mindstorms! An ROV is an unoccupied underwater machine that can be used to explore the ocean, while being operated by someone at the water surface using a joystick, very similar to an Xbox remote. They are often used for inspection purposes and can also be fitted with attachments, like cutting tools or robotic arms. With this software platform, you'll have the power to create amazing robots out of Lego blocks and use your programming skills to bring them to life.
A career as an ROV pilot offers global opportunities. Not only will this challenge your STEM skills, but it will also give you the chance to work with others and showcase your creativity and consider a career in the underwater industry!
The Global Underwater Hub STEM challenge is a regional schools challenge touring the UK, visiting:
- Inverness Caledonian Stadium on 25 April
- Glasgow Science Centre on 26 April
- ORE Catapult, Blythe, on 9 May
- Newmarket, Suffolk, on 10 May
- Bristol on 24 May
- Manchester on 25 May
The final will take place on 14 June at Global Underwater Hub's head office in Aberdeen.
