The challenge is open for the elementary, middle, and high school students from the GCC countries: Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, in addition to Jordan.
Students can join this challenge by designing a remotely operated vehicle to perform specific underwater missions according to every year’s theme.
Any size of a group can work to build a SeaPerch, from a single student to a large group. However, the following recommended group size will maximize the SeaPerch experience and reduce the need for excessive kits while allowing each student to participate:
We recommend that all students take a particular area of engineering and apply it to their team and their SeaPerch ROV build. They can then prepare short lessons on their particular areas of expertise to share them with their teammates. The following student “specialties” are recommended:
We also recommend 1 adult supervisor per 4+ team in order to keep the building experience flowing smoothly and to prevent safety mishaps
