Submarine STEM 2020 offered students a fresh way to learn about the deep ocean and life around it while exploring the physics of submersible exploration and inspiring STEM careers. The lessons were hosted from London, speaking to scientists and experts who developed and dived with the DSV Limiting Factor, the first and only manned-submersible certified to dive to the deepest point in the ocean.

Broadcast from across the world this week-long live event focussed on submarine science, exploration, and conservation.
