May 4, 2013: TechBrick sponsors a Regional SeaPerch Tournament at Harford Community College.

On May 4, 2013, we held an off season competition with the Sea Perch program. This is an excellent addition to your US FIRST activities. However, be warned. It is WAY harder than it looks. All of our Sea Perch teams initially said, "Easy. Done in three hours." Three weeks later we were still working on bugs and building. Just like US FIRST it teaches a wide range of skills.  BOTTOM LINE: Read every line of the instructions. Do not just look at the pictures in the book. BE SURE TO SEE ALL THE COOL PHOTOS BELOW THE ARTICLE.  Also, the kits are complete and you can often find local grants to pay for them. Just add water...

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory hosted a Sea Perch robotics challenge at Aberdeen Proving Ground on June 11, 2011. Sea Perch is an underwater robotics program that trains students to build a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) created by the Office of Naval Research (www.seaperch.org). The students learned about naval architecture, electrical engineering, and team work during the fabrication process. In Harford County, eight teams built Sea Perch robots between April and June to compete in the challenge.

SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that trains teachers to teach their students how to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. Building a SeaPerch ROV teaches basic skills in ship and submarine design and encourages students to explore naval architecture and marine and ocean engineering concepts. It also teaches basic science and engineering concepts and tool safety and technical procedures. Students learn important engineering and design skills and are exposed to all the exciting careers that are possible in naval architecture and naval, ocean, and marine engineering.
