Virtual SeaPerch Camp - VPerch Summer 2021
Description: The Virtual SeaPerch Camp is a 1-week summer program that provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) through a variety of hands-on projects. Students will design, build, and simulate the performance of a SeaPerch using the VPerch app. Three (3) 1-week sessions will be held in July 2021.
During each session of VPerch, students will engage in workshops that teach basic engineering and science concepts to introduce students to the "engineering design process" as it relates to SeaPerch, a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The "engineering design process" will be taught through a variety of projects that focus on buoyancy, electricity, motors, and structures.
