Have your say

CHILDREN will be invited to take part in activities at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum this half-term.

The Gosport-based museum will host a family drop-in workshop, where families can uncover how and why ships used ‘dazzle’ camouflage and reveal how submarines were confused by it.

Children can make their own camouflage sub to take home.

Youngsters can dress up in cockroach costumes and find out about living onboard a submarine.

People can also visit the Horrible Science of Submarines exhibition that explores the horrible side of life as a submariner. It is written by the bestselling author of the Horrible Science books, Nick Arnold and illustrated by Tony De Saulles.

Gareth Brettell, learning manager said: ‘This half-term our family fun activities are all about the art of searching and hiding, something that submarines are very good at.’
