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.
This year's challenge, on April 29th, 2017, will be held at The University Of Memphis at the Campus Recreation building 620 Echles St. Memphis, Tn. 38152. The overall winning Middle and High School age Teams will gain a spot for the National Competition to be held on May 19- 20, 2017, at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA. Registration is now open to team members, families, and fans to attend the event.
Teams will need a SeaPerch kit provided by the organization.
There are grants available to support the purchasing of the kits.
Teams of middle school and high school students.
One submission per team per year.
Outcome of the Activity:
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.
