In keeping with Babcock’s work in Defence, we’re pleased to sponsor a team of talented students from Brighton Secondary School – The Buoys – in the Subs in Schools Technology Challenge.
The Buoys took their submarine to the State Finals and beat all competitors to become Schools State Champions and took part in the Schools National Final in Adelaide, SA.
Subs in Schools is a collaboration between REA, the Department of Defence and industry stakeholders, which allows students to explore the complex challenges of maritime engineering and hydrodynamics using coding and electronics as they design and build operational submarines and ROVs.
Babcock is proud to provide mentoring and sponsorship for Subs in Schools, helping to develop future generations of marine engineers.
