SeaPerch Program






Independence Seaport Museum believes SeaPerch presents an engaging platform for developing student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical fields. The Museum is committed to furthering SeaPerch program initiatives in the Philadelphia area, and will serve as a mentoring, assembly, education, and testing facility. In addition to mentoring several teams participating in the SeaPerch Challenge, the Museum will provide a testing tank which any team participating in this year’s challenge can use for competition practice. Outside of the Challenge, the Seaport Museum is also committed to supporting youth teams, including boy and girl scout groups, interested in building SeaPerch units for educational purposes.
