We are Team OARS, a group with one goal - to innovate. Our team consists of 12 passionate students studying various engineering and computer science disciplines. We are here to make our mark on the university before we all graduate in May of 2026.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Over the next three years, our objective is to build a prototype of an autonomous unmanned surface vehicle (USV) - an autonomous boat - that will help rescue operations in stormy weather conditions. We can only start this with your help. We hope to raise $5,000 to be able to start working in a lab where we will begin the fun of building the first stages of our prototype.
