About Sea Perch
The Sea Perch is a simple, remotely operated underwater vehicle, or ROV, made from PVC pipe and other inexpensive, easily available materials.

The Sea Perch Program, created by the MIT Sea Grant College Program in 2003, trains educators across the United States and around the world to build the Sea Perch. Teachers then work with students to build their own Sea Perches and deploy them on research missions in nearby bodies of water.

The hands-on Sea Perch experience is a gateway to further study and careers in robotics, engineering, marine sciences and more.
