Join us for a fun-filled tour by submarine inventor John Holland especially for children aged 5-11 and their families. In 1901 Holland 1 became the Royal Navy’s first submarine and blazed a trail for the development of underwater warfare. The tour will help children to explore how and why John Holland invented a submarine and what it was like to live under the waves in a craft like Holland 1. This playful story tour will weave together STEM concepts and sensory exploration to help our mini engineers discover more about this incredible submarine.

Between 11-3pm  Busy Boats Bay will be open and children can enjoy a special Mini Engineers play day before and after their tour.
