Pittsburgh Regional??

I saw a list of events on the main challenge site.  Does anyone know if there will be a Pittsburgh regional event at CMU again this year?

If you are referring to the Pittsburgh regional sponsored by the Navy, we are not conducting a SeaPerch event in that location for the 2016-17 school year.

Why will there be no Pittsburgh Regional event this year? What should teams from the Pittsburgh reagion do?

There is a chance that Pittsburgh may have an event this season, but I cannot confirm that yet.  The Navy is not sponsoring an actual regional in the area, however the local Navy Recruiting district may be doing a local competition.  If they do, it will most likely list on the Event Calendar.

I handle Navy Outreach in the Midwest, and Pittsburgh is not part of my regions so I cannot provide more specific info.  The goal of our program is to interest students in STEM in as many diverse areas as possible within certain constraints.  Our mission areas can and do change each season, meaning we may do an event in Pittsburgh one season, then introduce the program to a city like Boston the next.  

In the meantime, you could try to see if there are competitions in other areas within reasonable distance using the Event Calendar (i.e. Ohio ).

I have confirmed that the Navy will have a Pitt competition on April 8.  It may not be listed on the event calendar.  For more info contact LCDR Craig Cardillo, City Outreach Officer for Northeast region at craig.cardillo@navy.mil
