This year, because of Covid-19, the Academy has moved online. However this means the Academy will reach many more students and teachers than it could with just the few days it normally runs for.

Students and Teachers from across the country are expected to take part, and interest has also been expressed from schools in other countries.

The activity introduces younger students to buoyancy, high school students to coding and engineering chemistry and senior students to naval architecture and ship propulsion.

As well as being a great learning experience for all involved it also introduces students to the maritime and heritage sectors as potential career option.

The SS Explorer benefits from the wide reach of the program, being seen by many more people than would have been possible otherwise.
