Congratulations to our Arma Dei Academy SeaPerch underwater robotics teams!!! Competing against middle school teams from across the region in various underwater challenges in the 2016 SeaPerch Challenge in Colorado Springs, both Arma Dei teams had an impressive showing of courtesy to judges and fellow competitors. By placing first overall, one team qualified and joined over 150 teams at the 2016 National SeaPerch Challenge at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. They competed in a juried poster competition and in-pool technical events with their SeaPerch ROVs.
