SeaPerch ROV

International Qualifiers

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.
