Article Features 4-H Underwater Rover Project

The Norway, Maine, Advertiser Democrat carried an article about an underwater robotic device built by members of Laker Youth Community Action, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H community service group in southern Maine, to monitor lakes for early detection of milfoil and other invasive aquatic plants. The submersible vehicle is framed with PVC pipe and rigged with propellers and an underwater camera that sends live video to a surface computer screen.
