    EDINBURG, Texas (Oct. 9, 2015) Commanding Officer Capt. George Perez of Trident Training Facility, Kings Bay, Ga., and Sailors of Navy Recruiting District San Antonio pose with students of PSJA Southwest Early College High School of Pharr, Texas, who won first place in the U.S. Navy-sponsored SeaPerch Competition held at the 2015 Hispanic Engineering, Science and Technology Week (HESTEC) on the campus of the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). Thirty-five high school teams competed in the event which consisted of an underwater obstacle course, ring pick-up and a display presentation. SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program sponsored by the Office of Naval Research that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. The goal of this event was to spark students' interest in science and math, so that they become inspired in pursuing a higher education and aspire to be a part of our next generation of engineers and scientists. HESTEC Week is an educational conference that features events geared towards promoting STEM education to people of all ages and backgrounds. The Theme for this year's conference is "Change the World through STEM". (U.S. Navy photo by Burrell Parmer, Navy Recruiting District San Antonio Public Affairs/Released)
