An IISG-sponsored contest gives teachers the chance to win educational tool kits that teach students engineering, science, and math concepts through the hands-on construction of underwater robots.

 
The SeaPerch Grant Competition for Educators grades 6-12 supplies winning teachers with a basic SeaPerch kit for their students. Teachers can enter at that link, and the deadline is April 20. 

Accompanying materials for lessons, exercises, and more can be downloaded for free at the SeaPerch teacher page.

SeaPerch is an underwater robotics project that helps teachers bring remotely operated vehicle technology and water science lessons into their curricula, offering a hands-on experience for students and engaging classroom exercises. View our blog post about a SeaPerch workshop earlier this year to learn more about the program as well.
