The Sea Perch program is a great way to get students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Sea Perch easily aligns to the national science standards and lends itself well to interdisciplinary projects. As we travel the world spreading Sea Perch, educators are creatively integrating this project into their classroom.
** Be sure to visit the Learn section on this website for informal descriptions of how Sea Perch components work, and relevant science concepts.
Field Trips and Site Visits
The Sea Perch experience can be greatly enhanced by allowing students to see real Ocean Engineers and Naval Architects in action. Field trips to ship yards and research institutions, classroom appearances or lectures by engineers and scientists, and visits to related events can bring alive the excitement of technology in the ocean.
