The SeaPerch National Challenge Committee is pleased to announce the date and location of the Fifth National SeaPerch Challenge. The 2015 National SeaPerch Challenge will be held on May 29 - 30 at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The Southeastern New England Regional SeaPerch Committee will be our hosts for the event where 100+ teams from across the country will compete in a juried poster competition and in-pool technical events with their SeaPerch ROV’s. Students will once again enjoy a “college experience,” as accommodations and meals will be available for all participants on the university’s campus.
Team registration take place on Friday, May 29th at the Tripp Athletic Center, where teams will complete their event check-in, ROV compliance review and receive their dorm assignments. The National Challenge will take place on Saturday, May 30, and will culminate with an award’s ceremony that evening.
Watch the SeaPerch website in the next few weeks for the official Competition Event Rules including specifications and rubrics for each event. The National SeaPerch Challenge is open to teams that have won their own regional competition. Regional coordinators must reserve competition slots at the National SeaPerch Challenge for the winners of their regional competition. Instructions for reserving these slots will be available on the SeaPerch website beginning December 1, 2014.
