Tales from the teams
The location. The missions. Now it’s time to meet some of the students who are busy designing and building ROVs for the MATE competition.
First up are the students from Long Beach City College (LBCC) located in Long Beach, CA, USA. This is the fourth year that LBCC has competed. Last year, the team finished 4th overall in the EXPLORER (advanced) class. For the second year in a row, they also took home the coveted “SHARKPEDO” award for design innovation (or “thinking outside the box).
The students from LBCC can tell you more about their plans for victory in 2007.
