What is SeaPerch?

The primary mission of the SeaPerch Program is to provide students and teachers with the resources and curriculum they need to build a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The program provides students the opportunity to learn about STEM as well as problem-solving, teamwork, and technical applications. In addition, SeaPerch provides teacher online video training and curriculum-based off of the national and Common Core standards.

The SeaPerch program developed out of the MIT ocean engineering program and a partnership with the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Since 2011, the SeaPerch program has been managed by RoboNation as a part of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Foundation (AUVSIF).
