2019 SeaPerch Challenge

The Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance is excited to announce its 7th Annual SeaPerch Challenge!

Sponsored by the Bank of Oklahoma, this is the Region 3 qualifying competition for the National SeaPerch Challenge .
K-12 students from all over the region are invited to build remote-controlled underwater robots. On the day of the competition, the students will guide their robots through a series of challenges. These challenges will test the design of the robots as well as the skill of the students. The competition is strong, but the fun is stronger!

The top two winners from the middle and high school levels will have the opportunity to go on to compete at the National SeaPerch Challenge in June.

Details

The event is for K-12 students with separate age divisions: elementary, middle and high school. There is no cutoff on the number of students that can compete. Teachers have to acquire the SeaPerch kit themselves or may apply for a kit through the SeaPerch Kit Grant Application.

Our Regional Challenge is a modified version of what students can expect at the National SeaPerch Competition. Students will be assessed in four categories: Judge’s Interview, Retrieval Mission, Maneuverability, and Speed. There will be two groups within the age divisions – one for the basic SeaPerch Kit and one for those who add on or modify the original kit.
