SeaPerch Robotics Competition

This innovative underwater robotics program supports teachers and provides curriculum enhancement in compliance with national standards to assist students in constructing an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). It is done in-school, after school or in an out-of-school setting. Students build their own SeaPerch ROV following a curriculum that teaches science and engineering nomenclature, terminology and basic principles with an ocean and marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics 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.
