Students around the world are busy preparing for the 2018 International SeaPerch Challenge in N. Dartmouth Massachusetts in early June. Teams start with the stock SeaPerch kit to create an underwater remotely operated vehicle. Members then have to learn how to make their ROV more simple, streamlined and maneuverable by improving their understanding of drag, buoyancy and thrust. Regional competitions are usually held in Feb-Apr (click here for the full schedule) and winners continue to work hard to make their vehicles even faster by June so their ROV can complete underwater tasks faster than their competitors’.
