What is 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. They follow a curriculum that teaches basic engineering, robotics, and math / science concepts. Throughout the project, students learn tool safety, problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and technical applications.

Students learn best by doing. Building a SeaPerch ROV teaches basic skills in ship and submarine design and encourages students to explore naval architecture, marine and ocean engineering principles. They are also exposed to some of the exciting careers that are available in the marine industry.

SeaPerch Is…

  • A hands-on educational tool.
  • Fun and challenging.
  • A curriculum that meets national learning standards.
  • An integrator of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
  • A teacher that the teaches.
  • A teamwork builder that inspires young minds.
  • An advocate that promotes STEM career discussions.

After the SeaPerch robot is constructed, students are encouraged to test their vehicles, deploy them on missions, and compete in a culminating event – the SeaPerch Challenge. Events at the Challenge can include vehicle performance (maneuvering & recovery), innovative design, and poster presentations.

Winners can compete at the National SeaPerch Challenge held each spring. The Navy League STEM Institute and the Navy League – Greater Green Bay Area Council have provided a monetary prize to assist our winners with National SeaPerch Challenge expenses.
