(Savannah Schools) St. Andrew’s students win ROV competition

St. Andrew’s School students won first place in the Gray’s Reef Regional MATE ROV 2022
competition, Navigator Class, in Savannah.

Students were tasked with designing, constructing, and piloting remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to complete a number of underwater challenges. Their winning design was created to benefit the
planet by performing underwater tasks such as gathering polutants, retrieving samples, and minor repairs.

Under the direction of St. Andrew’s faculty members, Maria Dixon and Dr. Kristin Peney, the students began designing their version of a ROV in the fall. After building three prototypes, the team continued to improve upon the final version until days before the competition.

Team members included freshmen Sierra Abbasi, Quentin Bronstein, Sterling Stephens, Erin Zimmerman and 8th grader Lorelei Downen.

St. Andrew’s is an International Baccalaureate World School inspiring young people age 3 through grade 12 in Savannah. For more information, visit saslions.com
