NCCOS scientists provided scientific support in the 2014 SeaPerch Challenge by serving as judges in the Charleston, S.C. competition on April 9, 2014. SeaPerch is an innovative, underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources needed to build an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Students build the ROV from a kit of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic science concepts with a marine engineering theme. As part of the nationwide competition, students presented posters of their projects and entered their ROVs in an aquatic obstacle course.
