Virtual Teacher - Step 1: Cut the Frame Parts (4:32)
To build a SeaPerch, you must have a sense of adventure, a passion for discovery, and, most importantly, a firm grasp of the safety standards associated with the project. Let's begin by going over the safety checklist and then move on to cutting pipes for the frame.
Virtual Teacher - Step 2: Drill Drain Holes in Frame (1:24)
Next, you will carefully drill holes in the PVC "elbows" for effective drainage.
Virtual Teacher - Step 3: Assemble the Frame (1:37)
Next, you will connect the cut PVC pipes and "elbows" together to form the frame.
VirtualTeacher - Step 4: Assemble the Float Supports (1:43)
You will now formulate the float supports, utilizing a H-beam and a 3/4" PVC pipe, along with a "football" float, tightening the Frame as you do so.
VirtualTeacher - Step 5: Affix the Motor Mounts onto the Frame
Now it is time to drill holes into the Frame in order to attach the motor mounts.
