  • Shedd Aquarium - Midwest MATE ROV Competition, John G. Shedd Aquarium

    In partnership with MATE, Shedd Aquarium hosts a regional event for underwater robotics clubs to showcase their engineering, presentation and teamwork skills, among others, while competing in real-world scenarios. This year, the Eastman Foundation is collaborating with the MATE ROV Competition and looking to its competitors to assist the company in doing “Good for Good.” Eastman has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and crew that can operate in the freshwater environments of Boone Lake, Boone Dam, and the South Fork of the Holston River.
