Program:  The Seaperch Challenge welcomes individual students, as well as student groups of middle school and high school age to participate in designing, building, and demonstrating the capabilities of remote-control underwater robots.  The basis for the underwater robots comes from a kit designed by MIT and the Office of Naval Research and is constructed using basic tools following a set of plans provided with the kits.  We encourage the student to modify the base design to improve performance in the different challenges presented.

 This year’s competition will be similar to the 2022 International Seaperch Challenge rules and will include:

 1.      1. An obstacle course for 10% of the score.

2.         2. The International challenge “Mission course” accounting for 60% of the total score.

3.        3.  Depending on the number of teams an additional underwater challenge may be added, unique to the NNE Challenge, offering students a variety of ways to earn points in the competition and maximize the time to demonstrate their piloting skills and their ROV capabilities. This challenge will account for 10% of the score.

4.       4. Technical Design Report competition which will account for about 20% of the score.  

5.       5. Team Video as defined by the International Seaperch Challenge for bonus points may be submitted.

6.       6.  The winner of the local competition will have the opportunity to compete at the 2022 International Seaperch Challenge
