Grade 7 Cycle Courses
STEM
Underwater exploration is the focus of this course. Students study the types of engineers and the reasons for underwater exploration. In teams, they build fully-functional ROVs in the classroom. Our SeaPerch project includes both electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Students learn to wire and solder circuit boards, and wire motors to the vehicles. ROV;s are tested in the pool and programmed to perform specific objectives.
