The 2021 Big Island Regional ROV Competition has been cancelled due to COVID-19
 
What if my regional decides not to hold an event this season?
MATE regional coordinators are under no obligation to hold an event this year. We recognize that there are challenges that may be insurmountable; for example, governing authorities may not permit students to gather together or share equipment and supplies. However, we at MATE HQ are committed to finding a pathway to the World Championship for regional RANGER or EXPLORER class teams that are interested in participating either in-person or remotely. We will work with regional coordinators who are not holding events to identify those teams and permit them to register directly with the World Championship. Those teams will be invited to advance to the event if they qualify; qualification will be similar to the current EXPLORER class demonstration requirement and RANGER class Video demonstration.
 
 
 
 
Get ready for the coolest competition of the year:  area students from local teams flying hand-built, remote controlled robots through a challenging series of precision maneuvers - all in under 15 minutes - underwater.  This year, the competition is challenging students to tackle problems that impact the entire world. Plastics clogging our rivers, lakes, waterways, and ocean, from the surface to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Climate change raising ocean temperatures, affecting the health of coral reefs. Contaminants in our waterways. You can find these scenarios from Pennsylvania to Portugal, Florida to Australia, the Western Pacific to the Mid-Atlantic, and Indianapolis to Indonesia.
