Underwater Robotics Club

The River Mill Academy Underwater Robotics Club is a central part of RMA’s STEM Program. The club is an afterschool extracurricular activity for Middle and High School students. It provides students with leadership opportunities and teamwork skills while offering various challenges related to the engineering world (such as electrical, marine, and systems engineering). URC supports students in developing experience in research, design, implementation, and public speaking. The teacher advisors for URC are Mr. Dragon and Mr. Scott and are mentored by Tim Kamenides (Honda Aircraft) and Thom Wilcox (General Dynamics). We are looking forward to competing in the Seaperch Regional Contest in New Bern and SeaMATE’s Coastal Carolina Regional Competition. We expect a strong, competitive program for years to come.
