SCHE will be participating in the Seaperch robotics competition which is being sponsored by the Bagley College of Engineering at Mississippi State University.
This is a wonderful competition for all ages to get involved in. Students create an aquatics robot to perform a task based on the theme for the year.
Teams are broken into age groups and limited to six students, but SCHE can field up to three teams in each category. There is a registration fee of $25 per student to cover kit parts and team registration fees.
Age groups are defined as:
- Category A – High School grades 9-12
- Category B – Middle Level grades 6-8
- Category C – Elementary grades 3-5
Registration for Seaperch will be through January 22nd, 2014. Meetings will begin January 28, 2014 and run once per week until the competition, which is in March.
