MATE Inspiration for Innovation (MATE II) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides students with educational experiences where they are inspired and supported to develop their science, engineering, technical, problem-solving, and entrepreneurial skills. MATE II's vision is a global community of learners, inspired by water, innovating and collaborating to address societal challenges.
The MATE ROV (remotely operated vehicle) Competition is the vehicle (pun intended!) by which MATE II carries out its mission. The MATE ROV Competition challenges students from around the world to utilize their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills to design and build ROVs (underwater robots) to tackle problems based on real-life scenarios.
We invite you to help shape the future of these aspiring innovators. Your contribution allows MATE II to continue to support students to develop the skills needed to achieve success in the global workplace!
