Houston Can Academy Students Dive Into The National SeaPerch Challenge

Houston Can Academy Students Dive Into The National SeaPerch Challenge

June 01, 2016

More than 1,300 middle and high school students from across the country, plus Australia, the Cayman Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, competed in an underwater robotics championship, the National SeaPerch Challenge, on Saturday, May 21, at Louisiana State University. More than 190 teams maneuvered their hand-built remotely operated vehicles, or ROVs, through an underwater obstacle course at the LSU natatorium. After placing third in the regional competition, five students from Houston Can Academy’s Hobby Campus participated in the national competition.

According to Dr. James Troutman, Houston Can Academy Hobby Campus Principal, “The competition allowed our students to see real opportunities for future study and work opportunities. STEM education inspires my students to continue their studies in Math and Science so that they may participate in an increasingly technology based economy of scientists, engineers, architects and technology professionals.”
