The exhibit will give visitors and campers a chance to get into the science of submarines and the forces they encounter while traveling the world’s oceans.
The S101 submarine was built in 1987, in Plymouth, England, and is one of the earliest diesel-electric subs ever constructed. It has been tested by the Swedish Navy, owned by an environmental group, and was later purchased by a private owner who improved its mechanics and dove it 35 times, exploring Lake Washington and Puget Sound in the state of Washington.
A special presentation for family audiences will be at 2 p.m. on Aug. 4, when OceanGate Foundation will discuss the history of submarines, present information on submarine research taking place in Miami, and take questions from the audience. Those attending will be able to take a closer look at the S101 Submarine on display.
It’s free with paid museum admission. For more information on the submarine exhibit, visit www.miamisci.org. For information on the museum’s 2012 Summer Camp, call the camp registrar at 305-646-4222.
