Workshop Summary

Shipbuilding has always been important in the region and in this workshop we shall explore why. The children will get the chance to explore the different jobs on a shipyard and explore some of the ships displayed in the museum. The class will then test out materials to see which float and sink before using different materials to modify a ship to improve its buoyancy.
