Embark on a thrilling journey into the realm of maritime engineering and hydrodynamics, where coding and electronics converge to bring operational submarines and Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles (ROVs) to life.
Introducing the SUBS in Schools Technology Challenge™, a groundbreaking competition born out of collaboration between REA, the Department of Defence, and esteemed industry stakeholders including the Australian Submarine Corporation and Saab Australia. This pioneering initiative was conceptualized in response to the Australian Government’s momentous announcement of the $50 billion Future Submarine Program, making it the world’s first submarine design competition of its kind.
Building upon the successful framework of the renowned F1 in Schools program, SUBS in Schools provides students with access to industry-standard technology, empowering them to develop a wide range of skills spanning design, engineering, manufacturing, and essential “soft skills” highly sought after by industries, including project management, teamwork, collaboration, problem-solving, and effective communication. This transformative experience also incorporates the intricate elements of underwater design, coding, and electronics.
Participants are tasked with designing and operating either a Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV), a fully functional submarine, or a captivating three-dimensional virtual scale model of futuristic living quarters within a submarine.
At its core, SUBS in Schools equips young individuals with the tools and knowledge needed to partake in the exciting new industries emerging as part of the Future Submarine Program. This initiative serves as a gateway to a future filled with boundless opportunities and an unparalleled chance to contribute to the advancements in submarine technology.
Join this extraordinary event and inspire the next generation to dive into the forefront of innovation, shaping the industries that lie ahead in the Future Submarine Program.
