Congratulations to Warren-Walker Middle School’s SeaPerch Club team. The Sea-Perch team, led by science teacher, Hunter Pashkow, has been granted a $600 INCOSE STEM award for 2013 for use in the development of a Warren-Walker Middle School SeaPerch program.

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). 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.

The students will work in teams to build a ROV and compete against other SeaPerch teams county-wide. Competition day there will be three competition events: two pool events (an obstacle course and object transfer event), and a poster presentation.
