The Science of Ships


Age suitable for: All ages

Visit:     



Come and learn about the science and engineering behind reducing the environmental impact of large commercial ships.

You will get the chance to see how model ships respond to wave motions in our new 140m towing tank facility.

This will include examples of seakeeping and how we can extract energy from waves to power future vessels.

There will also be hands-on activities where you can explore how ships float and what makes them stable
