International Qualifiers 2023
Our students have become involved with the SeaPerch ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) program. Each team of students designs, builds, and tests their own robot from materials provided in a pre-made kit.
The regional competition challenges teams to complete an obstacle course in the fastest time, and a mission course following the year's theme.
Our ROV team, Team Burrfish, placed second in the regional SeaPerch competition and is headed to the International competition in May!
On top of competition, the team regularly uses ROVs to reach younger students and spark an interest in oceanographic engineering.
The team is also working with the Red Tide monitoring team at the Science Station to develop an ROV that can collect offshore water samples.
