If you recall, the SeaPerch program is an innovative underwater robotics programs that equips teacher and students with the resources they need to build as underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts. It exposes students to engineering principles, problem solving, teamwork, tool safety, design, and competition.
