MARINETTE — The Marinette Middle School had a team of three students compete in the SeaPerch regional competition Feb. 16 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. 

The team of students completed missions as well as an oral presentation and placed fifth out of 16 local teams. 

The team was building their SeaPerch remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in an after-school club that took place at the middle school since November.

There were three events:

■ Obstacle course: Team members had to navigate through a series of hoops underwater and then navigate back out. The team completed this twice in less than 15 minutes.

■ Rescue and Recovery: Team members had to complete missions where they were moving rings with balls attached through a hoop and carry the rings to a recovery table. Then they were to rescue two ROV (Underwater Robot) parts from the bottom of the pool. The team was able to complete all the hoops and rescue one of the ROV parts.

■ Presentation: Team members had to describe their journey of how they created their ROV as well as what modifications they added and why. They also had to discuss what roles each person had and challenges that the team faced. Students created a presentation board to guide the presentation.
