Kingsport Aquatic Center1820 Meadowview PkwyKingsportTN37660

The MATE ROV Competition uses remotely operated vehicles (a.k.a. underwater robots) to inspire and challenge students to learn and creatively apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to solve real-world problems and strengthen their critical thinking, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and innovation. 

The MATE ROV Competition challenges students from across the U.S. and around the world to engineer ROVs to complete a set of mission tasks based on real-world, workplace scenarios. The competition emphasizes and inspires a mindset of entrepreneurship and innovation by requiring students to transform their teams into “start-up” companies that respond to an RFP. In addition to their robots, the student teams also prepare technical reports, create a marketing (poster) display, and deliver engineering presentations.

MATE ROV is heading back to Kingsport, Tennessee for the 2024 World Championship! Where: Kingsport Aquatic Center, Kingsport, TN. Save the Date: June 20-22 for the 2024 World Championship, with June 18-19 reserved for team check-in and safety checks.

This workshop is intended for community college faculty interested in becoming cybersecurity faculty or faculty wishing to expand their knowledge, earn an industry certification, and strengthen their ability to incorporate new cybersecurity content in their community college curriculum. This workshop is not intended for students or non-faculty.

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate level cybersecurity jobs.
