Hello innovators,

We have exciting news! The Water Power Technologies Office and NOAA announced the location for the Ocean Observing Prize BUILD Contest: Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division in West Bethesda, Maryland. Winning teams from the DESIGN Contest will have the opportunity to build their prototype designs and test them in a wave basin before moving onto sea trials in the SPLASH Contest.

We also want to thank those of you who joined us for the Marine Technology Society, Powering the Blue Economy: Ocean Observing Prize Q&A session earlier this month. The broad spectrum of questions from the community made the webinar a huge success! In case you missed it, we encourage you to check out the webinar recording here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/recording/4130690774581135368

Please reach out to us on the HeroX Forum with any additional questions.
