On Saturday, March 18th, the Pennsbury Sea Falcons Submersible Robotics Team participated in the annual National Sea Perch competition at Temple University. The annual event is sponsored by Temple University, the United States Navy, and the Office of Naval Research. The PHS team received a commendation for their submitted notebook as well as three trophies: Spirit and Sportsmanship, Oral Presentation, and Pool Performance.
Over the last five years, the Pennsbury Sea Falcons Submersible Robotics Team has won more awards than any other high school team at the Sea Perch competition, according to their coach, John Sanders, a teacher in the Applied Engineering and Technology Education Department. "As always, I am so proud of the team and honored to be their coach," said Mr. Sanders. "I also want to thank the parents of the Sea Falcons for their continued support throughout the years. We've already started planning for next year!"
