AquaBots are a remotely operated, tethered, underwater vehicle, designed and built by a group of students from a supplied kit. The varying levels of sophistication of the AquaBots ensures a broad appeal to students. The students must build the structure of the AquaBot as well as solder the components, including the controller. The programme culminates in a national challenge at the Richmond Aquatic Centre in November each year.
The kit is re-usable, as advanced students need to modify the structure of the AquaBot from year to year in order to compete. Winning teams are invited to compete in the International Sea Perch competition in the USA.
This representative picture shows the typical contents of an NZ Aquabots kit. Many of the parts are sourced locally and so may differ slightly from those shown here.
Please note that the battery (red cross) is not included.
