Aquatic Robotics Project

Learn science, technology, engineering and math skills to design and build your own remote-operated vehicle, then adapt it to monitor the water quality of Minnesota's rivers, lakes and streams. Solve scientific questions by designing and carrying out real experiments. Learn about biology by testing the water and observing nearby habitat. Learn about physics through buoyancy and electrical wiring.

This new project is being rolled out across the state in phases starting in 2011. Find out more by contacting your county office.
