 BUILD A SEAPERCH!
 
 Build your own remotely operated vehicle (ROV)
 
 
 Become a pilot and take it to the bottom of the pool
 
      Learn to hack your ROV and use it to do exciting science
 projects
      Take back lots of STEM resources for your classes                                           
      Find out how to build SeaPerch ROVs in your classroom 
      Learn how to apply for a grant for a classroom set of SeaPerch
      kits 
  The SeaPerch program brings hands-on, minds-on engineering design
 concepts and scientific principles into the middle and high school
 classroom.  Students build model ROVs from kits using PVC pipe and
 other easily obtainable materials.  During the SeaPerch workshop,
 teachers build and test a SeaPerch.  The National SeaPerch program is
 sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems
 International (AUVSI). 
 
 Join the many schools that create SeaPerch teams to participate in
 local and regional events!  Bring along up to two students to the
 workshop and start a SeaPerch team.
