After their remotely operated underwater robot won a regional competition in Milwaukee, the Oostburg High School robotics team headed to an international competition in Tennessee last week, the Sheboygan Press reported.
Thirty teams from around the world met to create robots to solve problems related to marine plastic pollution. The competition also includes a business component; teams are scored on a business plan and a technical report on how their robot works.
“Everyone has a different job, and everyone can find a place in the team to contribute,” said Chloe Breunig, a first-year team member who has worked on the engineering, business and cameras teams.
