Door County Students Place at SeaPerch Competition

Two Door County schools were represented in the recent regional SeaPerch competition day. SeaPerch is an underwater-robotics program from the North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance that equips teachers and students with resources to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. 

Washington Island’s Team Dory took second place overall during the competition at the Ashwaubenon Community Pool and will move on to the international competition, to be held in June in Maryland.

Sevastopol Middle School students Luke Filar, Austin Pagels and Daniel Castillo Barahona placed first in the obstacle course competition and took seventh overall.

This educational program is offered through the Door County Maritime Museum.
