In the West Courtyard, look for the large swimming pool surrounded by swarms of kids — that’s where you’ll find the PVC submersible robots of the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE), an organization funded by the National Science Foundation that puts on a competition of student-built underwater ROVs. They have simpler robots in the pool that kids can drive around, along with a more robust robot (bottom photo) on display.
