EDUCATION - SUB STEM

Submarine STEM is our education programme freely available globally.

We have an opportunity to inspire a generation with STEM and help turn the tide for young people.

Submarine STEM is focussed on two critical stages in young people's education that have the most impact on their views and aspirations of STEM and the likelihood that they will pursue STEM careers.

Our educational programmes are all delivered hand in hand with local marine scientists, schools, and educational Ministries in all our countries of operations and are designed to leave a lasting local legacy.
