TechLab: Teen Workshop (Ages 13-15)

It’s not your brother or sister’s summer camp. Focusing on hands-on engineering, technology, and ocean science, participants will complete advanced activities, such as building, programming and deploying ocean sensors, using digital microscopes to make images and videos of marine life, and more. Taught in partnership with staff and scientists from NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary!

UNDERWATER ROBOTICS CLUB

Spring 2017 Club

Spring Club is sold out with returning members. Please see Junior Oceanographer Camp and TechLab: Summer Workshop for Teens above to participate in additional ocean engineering programs.

Join Feiro and NOAA Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary facilitators to learn more about the world of designing, building, testing and competing in underwater robotics challenges.

In 2016, club participants competed at the national SeaPerch competition in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Teams also competed regionally at Olympic High School in Kitsap County. Club participants finished 1st and 5th out of 27 teams in the middle school division and 7th out of 11 teams in the high school division. We fielded the only two female participants in the high school division.

Wayne Roberts, our lead instructor, also provides underwater robotics programming during the summer with Upward Bound at Peninsula College, and our facilitators run several weeks of summer camp featuring robotics and other marine technologies.

We are enormously grateful to our sponsors who help offset the costs of this program in 2017: Beta Nu Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society and the Landing Mall (who hosts our water-based practice site).
