Partnering with Seafarers UK, we've created workshops to encourage more young people to engage with STEM subjects
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! We also have 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.

"Students enjoyed the balance between theory and practical application and engaged well with the process, developing their self-confidence, communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills"

We can offer schools up to two sessions. The sessions will be delivered by our experienced instructor and are available for up to 30 pupils. The workshops should take place in a classroom or similar. We require at least one member of the teaching staff from your school to be present during the sessions.
We will be rolling out some new exciting workshops in addition to our buoyancy one very soon. Watch this space for updates!
