SeaPerch is an underwater robotics innovative program that prepares students to build a Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle (ROV) for submarine missions in a classroom or out-of-school setting with a special kit that consists of low-cost and easily accessible parts.
Each season has a new theme and a new set of competition tasks, challenging teams to expand on their original vehicle design. Throughout the program, students will learn engineering concepts, problem-solving, design skills, and teamwork. They will also be exposed to all the exciting possible careers in naval architecture and marine/ocean engineering.
SeaPerch WA Challenge is an annual regional challenge that qualifies school students from the Gulf Countries for the International Competition. It follows a unique curriculum that teaches science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) with a marine engineering theme.
The Challenge is held annually in the UAE to qualify winners for the SeaPerch International Competition.
Any elementary, middle, and high school students from the Gulf Countries can join this challenge by designing a remotely operated vehicle to perform specific underwater missions according to every year’s theme.
