Shipbuilding

In the afternoon club of Shipbuilding, the students will combine basic theory with practical application, with the objective of becoming familiar with designing of submarine models but also of the sailing conditions.

The students, working in small teams, construct remote control submarine vessels. They try out and improve the sailing, the emergence and submergence of their model submarines in water at the swimming pool that is on the Pierce campus. They take measurements of the depth and they take underwater pictures and video. Through this construction, they acquire knowledge in an experiential way and they apply the basic principles of Physics, Hydrodynamics, Electricity, Engineering and Shipbuilding as well as the techniques of design, welding and assembly of constructions. They apply their newly acquired knowledge creating their own submarine..

Twenty (20) B Gymnasium students are going to participate in the afternoon club of Shipbuilding. The students will be separated into five four-member teams. If the case that more than 20 students are interested in participating, the participants will be selected based on their average grades in the following subjects during the academic year 2022-2023:

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • English

In the case that there are two students who have the same average in the above subject areas, the general Grade Point Average will be taken into account. If that is also the same, then the students who have the same grades will be called upon to solve problems of logic and explain Physics problems.

If you are interested in enrolling your children in this program, please notify Mr. Aggelis Triantafyllou atriantafyllou@acg.edu by Friday, October 6th, 2023.
