Submarine Museum exhibits Horrible Science

Date Posted: 18/09/2013

School groups can find out just how smelly submariners were, the ghastly food they ate and how sub loos could turn into poo fountains in the exhibition Horrible Science of Submarines at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Portsmouth.

The exhibition, from the creators of Horrible Science is part of the Saving HMS Alliance community project to bring new audiences to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.

The Horrible Science series is published by Scholastic Children’s Books and has sold more than five million books in the UK since it was launched in 1996.

Horrible Science of Submarines is split into five themes: food, filth, pesky pets, scary dives and stinky submarines. Each theme explores the horrible and scary slide of submarine life with a new Horrible Science character, young submariner Sammie Sardine, created by Tony De Saulles.

The exhibition is free for any school group visit and includes a fun educational workshop.

Visiting the Submarine Museum

A school visit to the Submarine Museum also includes a tour of HMS Alliance, the only British ocean-going WW2 era submarine in the world, led by a submariner who can tell first-hand what life was like to live under the sea.

Horrible Science of Submarines is open until the end of March.
