MATE’s international student underwater robotics (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) competition consists of an international event and a network of 28 (and growing!) regional contests that take place across the United States and in Canada, Hong Kong, Scotland, Egypt, Russia, Turkey, and Bermuda. Student teams from upper elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, home schools, community colleges, universities, and community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club and 4-H, participate.

The 2017 MATE International ROV competition will take place Friday, June 23rd - Sunday, June 25th at Long Beach City College.
