Design a new robot submarine
This resource is part of the Polar Explorer Resource Collection https://www.stem.org.uk/polar-explorer-educational-resources
This unit explores how robot submarines are used to explore the oceans and how they use different systems including the use of air pressure to go underwater, in their work. Children will investigate the relationship between displacement of water using air; and how this can be used to control and manoeuvre a submarine craft from the surface to floor of the ocean.
Children will be able to design and make their own submersible and find out more about the Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) that will be used on the RRS Sir David Attenborough.
