Meadowgrove Club organizes and hosts an aspiring SeaPerch Challenge team of students from schools in our local area - including Brumby Elementary, Sope Creek Elementary, East Cobb Middle.

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 learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

This is the story of the Meadowgrove Club SeaPerch Team..

Meadowgrove Club SeaPerch Team - Origin Story

The program started in May of 2017 over a conversation in our Clubhouse between Lilly Hanna -- Brumby's main adviser -- and myself (Tom Tosh). She mentioned the movie Spare Parts -- which I had not seen or heard of. True story of four inner city high school kids in Phoenix who entered the competition at the university level and ended up beating MIT and Stanford.

We had our first summer program in 2019 at the pool and we are in Year Three of a 5-year mission to qualify for the national competition. The program is geared to high-school and university level, but there's a basic level for middle-school - we are one of the rare elementary schools that has committed to taking part.

Here's the trailer for Spare Parts ..

Thank you, Sponsors and Volunteers!
