The Wisconsin Maritime Museum is offering underwater robotics summer camps this year, in conjunction with the Two Rivers FIRST Robotics Competition team, STEMpunk. Workshops are designed to teach kids in grades 6-9 how to build underwater robots (ROVs). Weekend camps teach marine science, technology and physical science concepts through hands-on experience designing, building and testing an ROV, followed by a day on the research vessel the RV Neeskay exploring submerged Lake Michigan shipwrecks using a professional ROV.
