Sea, Air, and Land Challenge

Ages:High School

Types:Tournament, Performance

Categories:engineering, Robotics, STEM

Scope:National

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Sea, Air and Land Challenge is an Office of Naval Research Sponsored program, in which teams of high school students learn the engineering process through the design of a system relevant to the Department of Defense.  The systems are then used to compete in challenges that mimic missions encountered by the military, national security agencies and first responders.

Sea, Air and Land Challenge provides the opportunity for high school students to tackle difficult engineering tasks while working with educators and industry mentors. The teams have twelve to sixteen weeks to design unmanned vehicles and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) payloads to compete in predefined sets of challenges. The challenges are designed by engineers at Penn State Electro-Optics Center and by some of the country’s finest Navy SEALs and Green Berets.

  • Sea: Develop a submersible to search a sunken UROV for recoverable payload.
  • Air:  Build a payload for a quadcopter that can release aerial drops onto dangerous forest fires.
  • Land: Build a robot that can deliver supplies to people trapped in a city building after an earthquake.

see competition website, each of the three challenges has unique scoring criteria.
