Our robotics competition in Savannah, GA is part of a much larger initiative encompassing over 30 regional competitions across the US and around the world. During this exciting, ocean STEM-education experience, student teams from across the southeast region challenge each other in an underwater robotic mission simulation, each vying for a coveted spot at the MATE ROV World Championship Competition.

Your support helps bring a diverse group of young adults together as entrepreneurs that design, build, and market innovative new technologies to solve a variety of underwater challenges. With your help, we can develop the engineers of tomorrow using the experience they learned through the Gray’s Reef Southeast MATE ROV Competition.

Here are some examples of sponsorship levels:

  • $500 = (Banded Sea Star) Builds a mission demonstration station for the competition
  • $750 = (Regal Sea Fan) Purchases a MATE ROV Kit for a school to build
  • $1,000 = (Atlantic Spadefish) Provides a training workshop for educators
  • $5,000 = (Loggerhead Turtle) Funds travel and material needs for student teams
