Seaperch
  • SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

     

    Seaperch is open first to 8th graders.  Depending on the number of students interested 7th grade students may be asked to participate.

    Challenge information is posted in November and a team is formed.  

    Once a team is formed the Club meets every _______________________ in the STEM room after school until 5pm. (other times by appointment)

    The competition is held at the end of March.
