In this paper we will introduce the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) International Student ROV Competition and the development of the Scottish Regional Event that feeds into it. We will present case studies from teams that have taken part with particular reference to the influence it has had on the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects in school and the career choices of school-leavers. We will also present the industry view from team mentors, judges and sponsors from companies supporting the MATE Scotland ROV Challenge.
