SEVASTOPOL — A team of Sevastopol eighth graders built an underwater robot to take second place in a regional competition, according to a story in the Door County Pulse.
For taking second in the Feb. 22 regional competition, the team is headed to the University of Maryland for the 2020 International SeaPerch Challenge from May 30-31.
SeaPerch is an underwater robotics program that teachers engineering and science concepts through the assembly and use of a remotely operated vehicle.
The team is also trying to raise additional funds to cover the estimated $2,500 it needs to attend an international challenge.
