Pompano Beach High School’s SeaPerch club is an award-winning underwater robotics club. This club was first introduced to the school by Club President Maria Ilonta in 2016. They started out building ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) mostly with 1 inch PVC pipe and pool noodles. As they progressed in their knowledge of Rhino, which was offered in a class at the school, they realized they could design faster, hydrodynamic, lightweight, buoyant models using the software.
The team started using Rhino to design new models. They’ve built countess parts pieces and even whole models for these underwater ROVs. They customized their models, and eventually 3D printed them. They started placing top in every local competition and qualified to send teams with 3D printed ROVs to nationals in Atlanta, Georgia (2017), internationals in Dartmouth, Massachusetts (2018), and internationals in Washington, D.C. (2019).
