GISD Students Excel at Regional SeaPerch Competition

GISD Regional SeaPerch Competition Video

On Friday, March 25, student teams from all over GISD competed at the Regional SeaPerch Competition. SeaPearch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). While students build the ROVs, they engage in a curriculum that teaches the basics of robotics, science, math, marine engineering and collaboration. 

At regionals, students compete with their teams in various timed obstacle courses. This year, 39 student teams from GISD competed in the regional competition. Students put their knowledge to the test, and results showed success across the board.
