A Quick History
Founded in January, 2021, SeaCow Robotics is an all-girls, award winning underwater robotics company in its third year. Our mission is to not only collaborate to make an efficient underwater ROV but to give young women a safe place to explore and push their STEM passions.
The MATE ROV Competition offers a challenge to create a ROV that will complete numerous underwater missions simulating real challenges being tackled during the UN Decade of Ocean Science and Sustainability such as deploying a profiling float that wirelessly sends data to a topside computer, administering Rx to diseased corals, and more.
Our team needs to utilize CAD software, 3D printers, laser cutter, and CNC router to design and create copies of the missions and a robust underwater vehicle. Our ROV is then tested in a local swimming training center under various depth, current, and light conditions. We also need to custom program devices to send and receive information, as well as actuate devices that are components on the ROV.
We are based out of Lanier High School, a Gwinnett County (Georgia) Public School, and belongs to the Lanier Center for Design and Technology STEM Academy.
In addition to competing in MATE, some of the girls compete in science fair with their underwater robotics focus, and won the "Engineering" category of the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair and will participate in the 2023 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair in Dallas, Texas.
Our next goal: win the World Championship!
