Underwater robotics: an unusual after school hobby, to be sure,
but also an enthralling one. Atlantis ROV Team was founded in 2011 and
has been soldering on the dining room table ever since.

Our ROVs have been grassroots efforts, built after school in a one-light town without a shop or a school program to support us. But our shoestring budgets and meager tools were a blessing, and only inspired us to work harder.

With determination, curiosity, and the support of our small island community, it has been an incredible journey. It has been so far beyond our wildest dreams.

We've reached Internationals and are one of the top ROV teams in the world. We've met students from other countries, affected hundreds of people through our STEM educational exhibits, had discussions with research scientists, marine archeologists, engineers, and business leaders, flown a plane, and been invited to Europe's largest ROV competition.

We have grown up in this competition: Chris was seventh grade and Hannah eighth when they started ROV and they will be teaching robotics workshops to Romanian students as part of their culminating senior project.
Haley was only nine when she started, and she and Annika will likely be competing at the college level by 2016, as sophmores in high school.

The last years have taught us about so much more than just circuitry and hydraulic pressure testing. Through this competition, through engineering, and building robot after robot, we have learned so much about teamwork,
creative problem solving, perseverance, and most importantly,
our ability to take action and make a difference.
