ROV Tech Lake Adventure Camp in Burlington

lcmm Education

Earlier this summer we had young students build and fly their own remote operated vehicles (ROVs). Did you know that LCMM offers advanced ROV camps as well?

This August we had five students between the ages of 13 – 16 join us at the Waterfront Diving Center in Burlington to learn more about ROVs. During the week we visited world-famous ROV makers Greensea Systems, assembled a SeaBotix ROV, and flew it over the wreck of the Champlain II! Of course, we also took some time for fun, and spent lots of time in the lake snorkeling and swimming to cool off.

Is your young learner interested in STEAM, shipwrecks, and robotics? Consider enrolling them in one of our ROV camps next year!
