Subs in Schools 2018

The Subs in Schools competition has once again commenced and this year’s group consists of 6 year 10 students, they’re and eager group and are willing to learn which is the most important thing. Once again we have partnered up with the ASC to help support and mentor our team. The students have had numerous mentoring sessions with the team from ASC already and it has helped them immensely.

This year the team name is “Seawolf” named after the nuclear powered fast attack submarines in service with the United States Navy. The Seawolf submarine class cost approximately $3 billion per unit. The students exterior design of a fully white submarine with a wolf head on the nose cone has commenced with the use of laser cutting technology. The internal layout of the submarine is similar to the previous year’s however a few of the electronics need replacing and re programming.

The students have commenced their portfolios as well as submissions for sponsors to help them provide marketing opportunities as well as help with props for the booth design. I’m glad to announce this year’s sponsors are ASC, Australian Government Department of Defence, SAAB, Australian Maritime and Fisheries Academy (AMFA), Australian Maritime College (AMC), REA Engineering and Big Yellow Rocket Signage Port Adelaide.

The students have a busy month ahead before the competition at the Royal Adelaide Show on the 5th, 6th and 7th of September. I would like to thank the sponsors and especially the ASC for their support and mentoring of this program and our Le Fevre High School team.
