Seaperch Navy Regional Competition support requested for 18 March 2017 Regional Competition.  The SAME Lake Michigan Post (LMP) has the opportunity to provide engineer judges to the Regional competition for this robotics event.  Over 500 students are expected to compete at this event which drew included schools from the Chicago Area and across state borders last year.

This is the 3rd year the Navy has hosted this event on-board Naval Station Great Lakes.  Student teams build remote operated (tethered) underwater robots that compete in three events: (1) Obstacle Course, (2) Maneuver Event and (3) Poster/Knowledge Challenge.  The judges support the knowledge/poster competition by questioning the students on what they’ve learned during the process of building the robot and using a rubric for scoring the posters.  Questions are provided as a background for the knowledge event.

Please contact Joel Sensenig at joel.sensenig@me.com if you’re interested in supporting this event as a judge; 18 March.
