Explanation and History of Springs Valley Seaperch:
"SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications."  This information about the program was taken from the official seaperch web site.  More information and history about the national program can be found at: http://www.seaperch.org.

The Springs Valley Seaperch program started in 2010-2011.  The first three Springs Valley Seaperch teams led by Jeff Kerby and consisting of members, Chloe Day, Payson Deiffenbach, James Fields, Dakota Hall, Dillon Livingston, Landon Price, Andy Rose, Nia Seitz, and Michelle Stinchcomb paved the way for a growing and successful program, with the team of Price, Seitz, and Stinchcomb advancing to the state competition at their first meet.  By 2012-2013, the program led by Jeff Kerby and Chad Goldman had grown to 25 students in 7 teams, with 5 teams advancing to state and two teams advancing to the National competition in Indianapolis.
