Opportunities to Get Involved in WaterBotics

WaterBotics: not just a program, but a gateway to innovation, creativity, and problem-solving. There are three main avenues to get your feet wet.

Run a WaterBotics Program with Youth

Embarking on an Educational Adventure

Imagine transforming your classroom, after-school program, or camp into a vibrant lab where students build and program their very own underwater robots. It starts with a simple step: assessing your environment’s equipment needs and costs. Then, arm yourself with a curriculum license (or more, depending on your team size) to unlock a treasure trove of resources including surveys, videos, and simulations from the WaterBotics website. Ever peeked at a curriculum sample? It’s like the trailer to the blockbuster hit your educational program is about to become.

Attend a WaterBotics Training Session

Sharpening Your Skills

Training isn’t just about learning; it’s about experiencing. Stevens and its project partners whisk educators away on hands-on training sessions that are more than mere introductions to the principles of WaterBotics. They’re deep dives into the design, build, and test phases of robotics, enriched with science and engineering concepts. Opt for the blended training model to continue your journey online after an immersive face-to-face kickoff.
