Judges & Volunteers

Welcome judges and volunteers!  Thank you for supporting the MATE ROV competition. To express interest in volunteering for the Oregon Regional MATE ROV Competition and to be placed on a mailing list, please contact OregonCoastSTEM@oregonstate.edu 


APRIL 19 - All volunteers will soon receive a draft staffing plan for the competition.We will be setting up at the Lincoln City Community Pool at 7 am on Saturday. If you are available to help with set up that would be great. All participants including volunteers are required to check in at the registration desk. Team registration/check-in begins at 8 am. Teams will come in, set up their posters, and ready their ROVs for a Safety Inspection. No ROVs are allowed in the pool unless they have been cleared by the Safety Inspectors. Poster judging and Engineering Presentations will occur throughout the day in the gym. All teams will have two Mission attempts this year.

If you are an Engineering or Mission judge, you will be working with a partner. Please plan on meeting at the Lincoln City Community Center break room at 9 am to get your score sheets and directions. 

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided; Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.  Carpooling to the event is encouraged.  

Finally, we are still looking for a few volunteers. If you have a spouse or colleague who is interested in lending their time and talents, please let us know.  Thank you again for your continued support. This competition would not be possible without it.
