Teachers from the dawn of time have faced the question, “Why do I have to know this?” But for ten of WCA’s middle schoolers, math and science have never been more relevant. Under the leadership of faculty advisers, these students planned and built a remotely operated underwater robot (dubbed the “Loch Mess Monster”) to compete in the 2017 SeaPerch challenge, presented by MIT and the Office of Naval Research to introduce students to the world of Naval engineering. After hours of research, design, creation, and presentation preparation, the students traveled to Temple University in March to join other middle and high school students in the 13th annual SeaPerch challenge. Competition comprised a test of vehicle performance, a presentation of their design, and a measure of sportsmanship and the ability to encourage excellence in competitors’ designs. Whether or not there’s a future naval engineer among the WCA students who participated, only time will tell, but the chance to put knowledge into practice and to better grasp the intricacies of God’s creation has been invaluable for each of them.
