Sea Perch Institute
Sea Perch Institute builds on MIT Sea Grant's work with the Sea Perch - a simple, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that high school and middle school students can build in their classrooms or after school programs. 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 and deploy the Sea Perch.
For the 2010-2011 academic year, Sea Perch Institute teams were asked to respond to a disaster—they had to react to, investigate, and contain an underwater oil spill. Learn more about the SPI Challenge 2011
For the 2009-2010 school year, Sea Perch Institute teams conducted a search and salvage mission. Learn more about the SPI Challenge 2010
