Laing students sweep the Charleston Challenge Seaperch robotics competition

  • Friday, April 25, 2014

On April 9, Laing participated in the Charleston Challenge Seaperch Competition. The competition consisted of students building an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) that goes underwater.

The students used a remote to “fly” their ROV through a timed underwater obstacle course. Another aspect of the competition was called “the Heist,” where students used their ROV to open a door, retrieve items from the bottom of the pool and relocate those items. Students were also required to explain their project through a poster.

Laing swept the middle school competition by winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall.

1st place-Kyle Doyle, Will Frame

2nd place- Niclas Lurkin, Harrison Billhorn

3rd place- Gunner Perry, Jay Williams

Teams were coached by Robin Sheek and Ronda Seay
