Swimming Pool for Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (UROV) Submersibles

Help me give my students a Pool for Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (UROV) Submersibles

My Students

I have 2 classes of smart, energetic students. Many come from challenging backgrounds. Many struggle in the traditional school environment. I get them for 3 AWESOME hours every day and we are learning Mechatronics Engineering... In other word, FIRE Breathing Robots.

My students all get very excited when we "dive" into coding, programming, building robots, and other Electronic or Mechanical Engineering topics.

My classes and Robot Club students have been wanting to learn about Underwater Remotely Operated (UROV) but we need a pool.

My Project

This year as part of class and part of our Robotics club, we are doing a module on Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (UROV) robots… but we need a pool to drive our submersibles around.

Having an above ground pool we can setup and tack down easily, where we can drive /fly around the UAV and UROV submersibles is a great way to get students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM)

This pool will make a big difference in how I am able to teach this module, as we don't have a pool available at our school. This pool will be right next to my classroom
