I'm wondering about the rules also. I read the ones for last year but not all of it seems clear. I want my students to start building but the rules haven't been posted yet. I think it is unclear what we can modify and what we can't and how you get entered into the open or standard clases. Anyone who has done this before any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

To my knowledge, there are very few limitations on how you can modify the SeaPerch, as long as you stay under the $20 budget for the "stock" classes, and use the stock motors.  We saw quite a few different configurations at Nationals last year.  Our team used flexible pex pipe to replace some of the PVC.  We saw several ROVs with alternatives for the pool noodle floats.  We even saw one with custom 3D printed propellers.  

The "open" class has no budget, so all bets are off.  There was one ROV at Nationals last year that had a pneumatic gripper to pick up the challenge orbs.
