This is challenge three from the 2016-17 bp Ultimate STEM Challenge competition.
bp uses remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) to inspect and maintain seabed equipment. These use hydraulic or motorised robot arms to grip and manipulate tools and controls. The challenge for students is to find the best design for a simple robot arm and gripper. How you tackle this challenge is completely up to you and your students. You may wish to use these optional introductory resources to get them started.
