What Your Kids Are Doing
Researchers at MIT Sea Grant have developed Sea Perch as a means of getting students interested in science and technology through a fun, hands-on project.
Building a Sea Perch entails a lot of work. It involves following detailed instructions, which requires superior concentration, patience, and fine motor skills. Building a Sea Perch also exposes children to a wide variety of scientific disciplines and theory and learning practical skills, such as safely using a PVC cutter, power drill, and soldering iron.
Sea Perch also helps inspire children to pursue careers and higher education in science and engineering.
