Special Awards: Against All OddsThis award recognizes a team that overcame obstacles and maintained a solid team spirit the whole time.  Their motors had completely corroded, and in very short order, they worked as a team to rebuild all their motors, integrate them on the SeaPerch and got into the water to compete. They were cooperative, pleasant and professional in the face of adversity.

 Quality Award for Robustness in Concept and FabricationThis award recognizes the team went through many design iterations and developed all sorts of prototypes of their various component designs.  This prototype and test approach led to their robust final design

Admiral Mooney Deep Ocean Exploration PIONEER Award He was the Chief of Naval Research and a deep submergence vessel operator.  I had the fortune to sit next to him at several National Academy of Science dinners and at the judges’ and awards dinners for the RoboSub Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competitions.  He enthralled me with daring sea stories and some amazing ideas.  He generally refused to accept NO for an answer, especially when he had a passion for his purpose.  The young man we recognize for the Admiral Mooney PIONEER award competed here today as a result of his refusal to accept NO for an answer.  His school told him he could NOT start a SeaPerch program, the principal would not allow his teacher to start an after school science program and invite students to work on robotics.  And yet, he built a SeaPerch at home, and found a way to get here and compete today.  He also vows that he will start a club and teach others about SeaPerch.

Creativity Award for a Unique Design or Strategy This team had a unique strategy with respect to design and testing.  They had several ideas for thruster configuration, and built a test rig with a dynamometer to evaluate various thruster configurations and their performance before incorporating this robust design into their SeaPerch.  Great strategy.
