NJROTC units adding SeaPerch to STEM learning
Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) across the country received Office of Naval Research (ONR) underwater robotic kit called SeaPerch, Sept 17.
Striving for more Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) courses, numerous schools around the U.S. are adding to SeaPerch to their unit curriculum this school year.
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 while building an underwater ROV through a hands-on experience. Throughout the project, students learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.
“I think the program is great especially since this is my first year,” said NJROTC Cadet Petty Officer 3rd Class William Rhodes, 15, a sophomore from Washington (Ind.) High School. “It really got me interested in engineering and science.”
