Virtual SeaPerch: Phase II Begins!

VPerch

 

(September 11, 2013) HONOLULU – isisHawaii is pleased to announce it has received a subcontract from Navatek Ltd to develop Phase II of isisHawaii’s virtual application, VPerch (Virtual Sea Perch) – an on-line educational module that introduces students to basic engineering and computer-aided design concepts through designing, building and testing underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). Concepts are aligned with the national SeaPerch model and are intended to supplement and enhance student experiences with this program.

Partnering with 3D Academy (educational division of 3D Innovations, LLC), isisHawaii will work with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) experts at Navatek to enhance the basic module developed in Phase I (initially funded in 2011 by the Hawaii Technology Development Venture). The Phase II VPerch module will support customized design and CFD testing features that will take students through real-time hands-on experiences in engineering design.
