2020 SeaPerch Challenge

The Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance is excited to announce its 8th Annual SeaPerch Challenge!

This is the Region 7 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 four teams with the highest scores from the middle and high school stock classes and from the open class will advance to the Nation Competition at the University of Maryland on May 30-31, 2020.

The event is for K-12 students with separate age divisions: elementary, middle and high school. This year includes minor updates to the historical SeaPerch classes and introduces an Open Stock class where students of all grade bands who significantly modify their perch compete against each other.

Five teams from each school may register to compete. Schools with more teams are encouraged to host a qualifying competition. 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.
