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.
The curriculum includes discussion of potential careers in technical and engineering fields, as well as related fields of study, and also offers a template for an end-of design Challenge. The program can be used to inform and educate students through a hands-on activity in the classroom, with the objective of generating interest and enthusiasm for continued science, technology and engineering studies. The long-term goal is to create the next generation of STEM Professionals.
Most of all, the SeaPerch Program is designed to be fun while also building teamwork and inspiring young minds.
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsors the program, and it is managed by the AUVSI Foundation. To learn more about SeaPerch, visit www.seaperch.org.
