About the Navy Great Lakes Regional Competition

The regional competition uses the same course and score system as the National SeaPerch competition. To check out this year's course, visit www.seaperch.org. This competition features three classes: Middle School Standard, High School Standard, and Open Class. Three teams qualify for the National Competition at the University of Maryland in May.

Approximately one month before the competition date, each team receives a confirmation packet with their assigned competition time slot, rolling check in time, and more. Competitiors can enjoy a food truck, triage station, and test pool on competition day.

What is SeaPerch?

SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build their ROV using pre-assembled kits and a STEM curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. Throughout the project, students learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

Who can participate and how long does it take to build a ROV?

SeaPerch is designed for middle and high school students. SeaPerch recommends one ROV kit for teams of 2-4 students. It takes approximately 10 hours to build and test a SeaPerch kit, but the SeaPerch curriculum is adaptable to each group’s needs and learning outcomes. Some schools spend a whole semester building their SeaPerch, whereas out-of-school groups may dedicate only a few weekends.
