The 13th annual international ROV competition is happening this weekend at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena.

59 teams of students from 13 countries around the world are competing to show just what their underwater robots can do.

The competition is in two levels with the Ranger class made up of High School age teams and College-level students in the Explorer class.
WCMU’s David Nicholas is on scene and will be sending us information periodically, but in the mean time the Marine Tech website has a live feed at this link:
