Students stand with plaque they won.

Congratulations to our Van Antwerp SeaPerch teams on recently finishing in second and third place at a regional SeaPerch competition at RPI! SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that requires teams to build an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to complete a challenge. The SeaPerch program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM).

2nd Place: VA 7th Grade Team Aquabots – Ryan LeBrou, Aarush Sinha, and Carter Fischer

3rd Place: VA 7th/8th Grade Team M.A.R.V. – Emily Aldas, Sabriela Spencer, and Lucy Hart
