Mt. Oaks Charter School students Shannon Woodside, Hans Baschy & Bret Hart High School student Lars Baschy competed at the Marine Advanced Technology Education ( MATE ) Underwater Robotic Competition in Watsonville on May 11th. The team  placed 1st in the Engineering Presentation and 2nd Overall to win an invite to compete at the 2019  MATE International Competition.

This is the highest place in the 15 year history of the Mt. Oaks’ sponsored team. Shannon & Hans have participated in this rigorous program all through high school. Teams from 10 countries ranging from Russia to India and across the United States will use their own engineered and built underwater robots  to compete June 19th-22nd in Kings Port, Tennessee.

MATE is an organization whose mission is to use marine technology to inspire and challenge students to learn and creatively apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to solving real-world problems in a way that strengthens critical thinking, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Students design, build and troubleshoot their Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) to complete a set of tasks in a competitive timed environment. 

It will cost approximately $6,000 round trip for this exciting opportunity. This includes renting a van, hotel accommodations, food for the 10 day round trip, and the awards banquet. With this short time frame, we are looking for sponsorships or contributions to help support this amazing team.  Sponsors and contributors will be acknowledged during the evaluation review, and on our team marketing display.


Thank you for your support.
