About This Activity

SeaPerch is a “hands-on”, “minds-on” innovative underwater robotics program that equips students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) The SeaPerch Program, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), provides students with the opportunity to learn about the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) of robotics while building an underwater ROV. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications that include; • Ship and submarine engineering & design • Buoyancy/displacement • Propulsion • Soldering/tool safety and usage • Electricity/circuits and switches • Ergonomics • Waterproofing • Depth measurement • Attenuation of light • Basic physics laws of motion The 2014 College for Kids SeaPerch course will be conducted, in its entirety, on the Penn State Behrend Campus. ROV construction is scheduled for Monday through Thursday. On Friday, students will test their completed SeaPerch ROVs in a variety of underwater challenges at the Junker Center Pool.
