Pupils will learn through practical activities and experiments about buoyancy, displacement, density, Newton’s 3rd Law and Archimedes Principle. In teams, they will be tasked with designing and building a ship which is stable in the water while carrying as much cargo as possible. This practical task concludes in the pupils testing their ships and discovering which team has succeeded in carrying the most cargo whilst staying afloat!
There are also Marine Engineering Pods which can be used to allow small groups of pupils to get hands-on experience with real life engines, further enhancing their learning experience. The Pod is booked separately, in addition to the workshops.
