Diving Underwater with Remotely Operated Vehicles

The purpose of the Schools for Applied and Innovative Learning (SAIL) is to teach our students to engage with authentic problems and current issues and develop the agency to work toward solutions that impact their communities and the world for Christ. The R.O.V. Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles SAIL class at DC was offered to 10th-12th grade students during SAIL week this fall. In this course, students designed and built submarine-like underwater remotely operated vehicles out of PVC piping and motors. Students were challenged to use STEM concepts from their core courses at DC to build their ROVs from the ground up and test them at the indoor pool of a neighboring retirement community. Teamwork was an essential component of this course as students collaborated in all aspects of the design and implementation of the ROV.
