MassRobotics hosted the inaugural BlueTech Robotics Academy in July, a week-long event open to high school students in the Boston area designed to explore robotics in underwater environments. 

MITRE’s sponsorship of the event provided resources and mentorship to the students, highlighting opportunities and careers in the robotics field. The successful partnership resulted not only in new aquatic drones, but plans for hosting similar events in the future.
