Design. Build. Test. Create. Innovate!
Calling all innovators! Ever wanted to build a robot that could be used to explore the depths of the ocean? During this 12-week club, you’ll be able to do just that! Using curiosity and determination as a guide, students in the Innovators Club will put their creativity to the test as they design and build a functioning underwater robot, or Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Working together to build their ROV, students will have a chance to learn about a real life scientific tool that is used to study our ocean today. Students learn by doing as they creatively apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in order to solve real-world problems in a way that strengthens critical thinking, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and innovation all while exploring the marine environment.
"As a 13 year old I wouldn't expect to walk into a classroom and be able to just build a robot!"

Students are welcome to join the club at anytime throughout the 9-week session. We are hoping to find a sponsor who will help us cover educator and supplies costs for our club. If we are successfully able to find a personal or corporate sponsor for the Innovators Club, we will be able to go on even more fun adventures and buy even more amazing supplies for our innovation projects. Regardless, students will be able to participate in this club for a small membership fee of $10 per club meeting, or $80 for the full fall session! If you know anyone who might be interested in sponsoring our Innovators, email us!
