Welcome to the website of the 2008-2009 University of Maine Human Powered Submarine Team!
2008-2009 Human Powered Submarine (HPS) team is comprised of fourteen
college seniors from the University of Maine’s Mechanical Engineering
HPS project is an important developmental step for the students by
solidifying the basic engineering principals gathered in the classroom
and applying them to a real life project. Vital interpersonal skills
are also gained through a collaborative team environment.
The focus of the team is to develop a manually driven
submarine and to later race it against other HPS teams at the 10th
annual International Submarine Races in Bethesda Maryland in late June of 2009. Check on our progress over the
next six months, as we will be posting photos and videos of our design,
construction, and testing of the new human powered submarine!
