Mission Overview Workshop - Feb. 17

We will have our mission overview workshop on the morning of Saturday, February 17th. We will begin at 1000 with coffee and doughnuts provided. Since our space is somewhat limited, please do not bring your entire team to this workshop. A team mentor, CEO and CTO should be more than sufficient and would allow us to fit everyone in. Please read the mission documents before you come so you are ready with questions for Stanley.

Thank you all for participating in this year’s MATE Pacfic Northwest Regional ROV Challenge - it was a great day! The vehicles were fascinating, the competition stiff, and all proceeded (mostly) smoothly to our final awards presentation. The individual scores and awards are shown below - congratulations to all! Special thanks to our sponsors and groups that came with extra experiences, including Ocean Gate Foundation, UW-ROV, MTS Student Section, and foundry10 - we appreciate the extra bit of inspiration you provided beyond MATE’s missions.
