Teams structure Details (Classes)

Group Size and Teamwork SeaPerch works best when students are encouraged to cooperate and work together in teams. There is a great deal of material to be learned in order to complete a build. When each student chooses an area to study more fully, they can share their knowledge with the team.

Any size of a group can work to build a SeaPerch, from a single student to a large group. However, the following list of recommended group sizes will maximize the SeaPerch experience and reduce the need for excessive kits while allowing each student to participate:

Tip Top Class: 2-4 students

We recommend that each student take a particular area of engineering and apply it to their team and their SeaPerch ROV build. They can then prepare short lessons on their particular areas of expertise to share them with their teammates. The following student “specialties” are recommended:

Mechanical Engineer: In charge of motors and mechanical systems.

Materials Engineer: In charge of structural systems. Checks quality of structure daily.

Electrical Engineer: In charge of control box and control systems. Maintains battery charge.

Systems Engineer/Project Overseer: Maintains positive flow, oversees the projects, and maintains a record of the build.

Presentation Designer: In charge of creating the final SeaPerch presentation.

Technical Writer/Illustrator: In charge of maintaining the engineering notebook.

We also recommend a certain number of adult supervisors in order to keep the build experience flowing smoothly and to prevent safety mishaps:

Tip Top Class: 1 adult per 4+ team

Team Registration Fees:

A registration fee of $200 will be charged for each team (5 members) attending the Regional SeaPerch Challenge.

Welcome to Space Exploration!

The 2022 SeaPerch Season is bound to be an exciting one! Much like the vacuum of space, the underwater environment presents many technical challenges teams will be expected to face. Underwater environments are used to replicate space during astronaut training and mission testing. Robots are becoming more common on the International Space Station (ISS) and astronauts perform a variety of tasks while aboard the ISS that are well suited for remotely operated and robotic support. The 2022 SeaPerch Challenge mission is inspired by these tasks.

To be clear, we are not sending SeaPerch ROVs into space! This is all about underwater testing. The space environment should be used as inspiration for your designs and a fun context for the mission course.

Milestones Mandatory

Technical Design Report

Describe the intentional design process you completed for your SeaPerch ROV. This report should include all required sections in the instructions and provide judges with an understanding of your unique SeaPerch design and your team’s approach to developing this design. This report should focus on the SeaPerch ROV your team designed to compete in the 2022 SeaPerch pool courses.

Team Video

Delivering ideas in a clear and convincing manner is critical to bringing your project to life and helping project supporters understand your ideas and be convinced of their potential. Prepare a short, 5-minute video introducing your team, describing your engineering design process, and providing a reflection on this season.

Pool Courses

Obstacle Course Overview

The Obstacle Course tests high-speed manoeuvrability and requires the SeaPerch ROV to navigate the course as quickly as possible.

Mission Course Overview

The Mission Course is related to Space Exploration. The International Space Station (ISS) Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Mission is a simulation of the tasks and environment that an ROV might encounter while assisting astronauts on an EVA outside the ISS. Teams will be tasked with upgrading the ISS’s battery system and moving tools for astronauts.
