We are truly greatful for the chance to bring the Gators back into the International Submarine Races and compete with other human powered submarines.
The raw learning experience, applied engineering skills and unveiled perseverance that bring a project of this magnitude from nothing but a dream to competitively racing in three months awards this team its own personal win regardless of any further outcomes.
For us, this has been about expanding the design project possibilities for the young engineers at the University of Florida – and so we’ll leave #1 regardless of the scoreboard.
