Our Kipapa team took FIRST PLACE in the Elementary Division (Gold trophy) and also won the Team Spirit Award (Blue trophy) for having overall good sportsmanship!
The students designed and built their own Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) that was required to maneuver through an underwater obstacle course and complete underwater missions (i.e., open latches, twist devices, carry weighted balls, and move trash). The students also had to write a technical design report which described their journey through the Engineering Design Process as they planned, created, tested, and improved their ROV. The trophies were only the icing on the cake as the hands on experience was the most valuable part of the challenge during this pandemic.
Congratulations Kipapa Cougars!
