Monday 24 August – Introduction into Maritime & the Royal Navy
Today, we will be taking a look at why ships have been so crucial to the UK throughout history, and the role the Royal Navy has played in keeping the UK safe.
Tuesday 25 August – Introduction to Maths
In the Royal Navy, maths is used everyday to help them design new ships, plot their course across the sea, and understand the forces that are at work when a submarine goes underwater.
You’ll have the chance to answer some mathematical calculations and problems that an engineer would have to consider when they design a ship.
Wednesday 26 August – Introduction to Engineering Part One
Engineering is essential to designing almost everything we use in our everyday lives, and it is the same in the navy. Without engineers, the Royal Navy would be without any ships! The Engineering branch keeps the Royal Navy moving.
We will be taking a look at how engineers design ships, from deciding upon what materials they should use to the shape the ship should be.
Thursday 27 August – Introduction to Engineering Part Two
Today we will continue to look at how ships are designed, and why different shaped ships are built.
You will begin to think about how you can build your own ship, and you also get the chance to test out different shapes in the water!
Friday 28 August – Technology
Today, on our last day, we will be taking all the skills you’ve learnt over the last week and putting them into practice by building your own ships!
First, we will take a look at how different ships and boats are powered and then we will be putting these methods to the test.
