Robotics on the Water

Pre-engineering students at the Providence Career and Technical Academy had the unique opportunity to develop STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – skills in an aquatic robotics design and build competition sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. The academy’s Robotics on the Water event is designed to provide a contextual learning opportunity for pre-engineering students at the Providence Career and Technical Academy. In addition to learning more about engineering from Coast Guard cadets, students were mentored by more seasoned engineers from the Coast Guard Civil Engineering Unit Warwick, R.I.
