SeaPerch Underwater ROV Kit
Build your own underwater remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) with this kit that has been used by several secondary schools in Singapore.
This kit includes an original control box and electronics from SeaPerch, while the other items are sourced from elsewhere to save on shipping costs from the US. The bulkiest items in particular such as PVC pipes are sourced locally. We don’t include a battery, charger, SeaPerch tote bag, SeaPerch careers brochure, SeaPerch pen, and SeaPerch ruler. Some items have also been adjusted for the metric sizes available here. Other than that, everything else is pretty much the same.
