About The Event

Building a SeaPerch ROV teaches basic skills in nautical design and encourages children to explore naval architecture and marine and ocean engineering principles. Throughout the program, students will learn basic science and engineering concepts, tool safety, problem solving, and teamwork.  This year’s SeaPerch challenge is inspired by deep-sea exploration. First discovered in 1977, hydrothermal vents are a critical area of ocean exploration. ROVs aid researchers in exploring the harsh environments that surround hydrothermal vents where extreme temperatures and pressures, toxic chemicals, and reduced visibility are the norm.
