The 2016 National SeaPerch Challenge hosted 195 teams at Louisiana State University on May 20-21, 2016. The competition began on Friday with the winners of the electronic poster competition being announced, and teams enjoyed a Friday evening social. Saturday started bright and early with opening ceremonies which were followed by the in-pool competitions and poster presentations for the top teams. Student teams overcame many obstacles as they demonstrated their expertise in navigating both the underwater Obstacle Course and Orbs Challenges. The competition was intense in the pool and in front of the poster panels, but teams found inspiration, made new friends, and gained knowledge as they shared their experiences in the team pit area.
The competition concluded Saturday evening with the Awards Ceremony and an LSU tailgate experience. SeaPerch would like to congratulate all of the teams that worked so hard to make it to the National SeaPerch Challenge.
