Last week the SplashLab organized the first-ever Seaperch competition in the state of Utah. Although, it was the first competition of its kind in the state, over 200 middle and elementary school-age students participated. Throughout the year dozens of volunteers traveled to these various schools to teach the students about physics and engineering. These students used their knowledge to build small remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs). The year-long program and competition was a great success. We would like to thank the dozens of volunteers the helped throughout the year and at the competition, as well as all of our sponsors and partners. Without our sponsors, partners, and volunteers, this program could not have been possible. It was because of all of you, that we were able to change lives both in the present and possibly in the future.

The event was covered by many media agencies the links to these stories can be found below:
