STEM ROV Club of Central WI is for middle school and high school students interested in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and business related to STEM. 

The club seeks students who are self-motivated and have a desire to work with a diverse team of students toward a common goal.

Meetings will give club members opportunities to develop skills such as engineering, scientific inquiry, design, teamwork, soldering, budgeting, presentation, and marketing. Students also have the option to compete on a Ranger class team in the WI MATE ROV competition. Please visit www.marinetech.org for more information on the ROV competition.
