STEM and swimming pools collide with the SeaPerch Challenge, an underwater robotics competition for middle- and high-school students. The regional competition is in April, which means now is the time to get ready to build.

Delaware State University in Dover is holding a kickoff event for the 2018 competition on Oct. 23 from 5–7 p.m. in the MLK Multipurpose Room. The event, which the Navy is sponsoring, will include information on 2018’s event and a free SeaPerch robotics kit.

RSVP

From the SeaPerch website:

After following the curriculum to create an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) from the SeaPerch kit, student teams earn the right to compete internationally by winning their local and regional SeaPerch Challenges. These teams will gather to test what they have learned by putting their SeaPerch ROVs through a series of underwater challenges, and will showcase their design in a juried engineering notebook competition.
