Gray’s Reef MATE ROV Competition seeking volunteers

Have you ever wondered how NOAA researchers discover shipwrecks lost at the bottom of the sea? What story of our maritime history do these vessels have to share and how are they affecting the marine life and ocean chemistry around them?

At this year’s Gray’s Reef MATE ROV Competition student teams from across the southeast region will be challenged to discover simulated shipwrecks and their impacts through underwater cameras and technology that they have integrated into their remotely operated vehicles (ROV) or underwater robots.

The competition will be held on Saturday, March 8, from nine a.m. to  four p.m. at the Chatham County Aquatic Center. The Gray’s Reef staff is looking for volunteers from the campus community.
