Enhance your SeaPerch design process online

There’s more to the SeaPerch program than navigating your SeaPerch ROV through the water. Before you cut your first PVC pipe or pick up your soldering iron, there’s an entire design process to ensure your ROV is seaworthy. Enter VPerch, a free virtual environment for designing, building, and simulating performance of your SeaPerch. Available in your browser or for installation on your device.

VPerch provides a fun and educational introduction to intentional design. In addition to enhancing your SeaPerch build in the physical world, VPerch users can compete their SeaPerch in an online environment using underwater courses inspired by past competitions. Please note: The VPerch program is a beta release.
