IPFW SeaPerch Experience July 9 – 12, 2012
IPFW invites high school and middle school students to form teams of 3-4 student each to participate in this summer experience/competition during the week of July 9 through July 12.
Students will enjoy building robots that can search the depths of ponds, lakes, and oceans. This summer program introduces students to the fabrication of an ROV (remote operated vehicle) or submersible. Once the student teams have built their ROV, they will compete in a challenge that involves an obstacle course and a presentation.
Students will have a chance to work with several mentors from various IPFW departments and college.

5. 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 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. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.
