Seventh grade spring robotics students finished a five-week long project to build a SeaPerch submarine from scratch.
This hands-on unit focuses on the concept of buoyancy and applying this knowledge to building a submarine robot.
They start the project by building the frame of their robot using cut PVC pipes and pipe connectors. Then, students learned to solder a circuit board that controls the motors and propellers on the SeaPerch. The final step of the project was waterproofing the motors using wax.
All students successfully navigated their SeaPerch Submarines through the pool.
