This is The Typewriter Repairmen's page for the 2019 National Underwater Robotics Challenge, a competition put on by Si Se Puede in Tempe, AZ.
The Typewriter Repairmen is a family robotics club. Jim, the Principal Instigator, is a "retired" mechanical engineer. He has worked with the local FIRST high school robotics team NERDS for the past 13 seasons as an engineering mentor, and discovered that it's about the most fun thing there is. Janet, his wife, is a retired engineer. Jim's brother David is an Electrical Engineer at the University of Arizona's Steward Observatory, and also runs a side business Cathode Corner, which sells neat electronic gadgets.
All through the project we have been posting videos on youtube.

NURC is back! We signed up for the event. Now, we have to figure out how to build a robot to play the game. We would like to design a new ROV that uses as many off the shelf parts as possible, and also we would like to get things done soon enough that other teams might get some new ideas of how to do things, by watching our progress. As usual, we are a bit late, and life is kind of busy right now with FIRST robotics.
