A life on the Ocean Wave

Not quite, but a group of Year 11 Science pupils did recently experience an interactive workshop with members of the Royal Navy.  The aim of the workshop was to generate a greater understanding of today’s Navy and to illustrate the use of Science, Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) in the modern workplace. Throughout the event they were able to learn how the skills they gain through their studies of Maths and Physics could be used in a career with the Royal Navy and Marines, including designing a gas turbine blade or calculating the fuel consumption on a modern warship.  Pupils got to crack codes, communicate using light signals, fly model aeroplanes, calculate flight paths, plot ship courses and consider the design of turbines for maximum efficiency.

The STEM workshop was a great success and an ideal opportunity for students to experience first-hand, simulated scenarios that naval personnel and engineers have to tackle.  They also heard about some of the career possibilities within the Royal Navy.
