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.

Submarine STEM for 7-11 year olds
Submarine STEM 7-11 provides elementary / primary school teachers with an engaging resource to explore the science and engineering of submarine exploration. The education program is based on the exploratory submersible journeys undertaken by Nekton as part of the XL Catlin Deep Ocean Survey.
Submarine STEM for 11-14 year olds
Submarine STEM 11-14 provides middle / lower secondary school teachers with an engaging resource to explore the science and engineering of submarine exploration. The education program is based on the exploratory submersible journeys undertaken by Nekton as part of the XL Catlin Deep Ocean Survey.
Submarine STEM Activities
Learn more about the science behind the Nekton Missions with this series of fun activities. Each 'mission' activity is based on one of the roles on the expedition. Complete each activity to earn one of the mission badges and work towards your Submarine Explorer certificate.
The Submarine STEM Colouring Booklet introduces young children (and adults!) to the extraordinary life of the deep sea. Discover more about these alien-like animals and enjoy colouring them in, or even come up with your own drawing of a creature from the deep.
