This program must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.

Learn the basics of density and buoyancy through a series of hands-on engineering challenges. Students will explore how submarines are designed to dive and climb through the water by changing their density.

This program typically takes place in the OMSI Auditorium or Classroom 1, not on the USS Blueback Submarine. (There's just not enough space down there!) Combine this program with a submarine tour during your field trip.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
