Topic outline

  • General



    This course's primary goal is to build a Seafox ROV that has the capabilities to submerse 50ft and take a water sample from Okanagan Lake.  The format of the class is student centered project based learning.  The students will design and build the ROV with various instruments on it for the purpose of future use by the science department.  For that purpose, the student team will also have to construct a user manual to provide user guides and a service manual.
