2016 National SeaPerch Challenge


The SeaPerch National Committee takes great pleasure in announcing that the Sixth National SeaPerch Challenge will be held on May 20 - 21, 2016 at the Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge, in the LSU Maddox Fieldhouse and LSU Natatorium.  Over 150 teams are expected to compete in a juried poster competition and in-pool technical events with their SeaPerch ROVs. 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 will be on Friday, May 20, 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 21, and culminate with an awards ceremony in the evening.  Team Entry Rules with the 2016 registration fees as well as Competition Event Rules, specifications and rubrics for each event will be posted on the SeaPerch website soon.

The National SeaPerch Challenge is ONLY open to teams who have earned a slot by participating in and winning at a regional competition. Regional coordinators must reserve competition slots at the National SeaPerch Challenge for the winners of their regional competition by following the instructions in the team entry rules which will be posted on our website in the coming weeks. Please check regularly for updates.
