Submarine STEM learning

posted 11 Apr 2019, 09:44 by Richard France

In the last week of Spring term, Y5 linked up with Encounter Edu - an online educational provider - to do some fantastic investigative learning about life underwater.  Encounter Edu have been collaborating with scientists on the Nekton II mission, exploring the Indian Ocean (  As part of their programme, they have produced some online learning opportunities for children to participate in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) learning about submarines and submersibles and how they work.  

We have investigated: 
how deep the ocean is and what the different zones are called
what materials to make a submersible out of
how the shape of the submersible affects the time it takes to travel to the sea bed
buoyancy and how to achieve neutral buoyancy
how samples are collected from the sea floor 
how pressure affects the submersible (and the people inside it)
how to build a crane with a working pulley system to raise and lower the submersible

Alongside this, we had some live links with scientists working on the Nekton II mission, and they answered some of the questions we had to ask.  Over 9000 children from 16 countries were involved in these sessions, so we were over the moon when we got some mentions by the scientists.
