Team Leaders
Mr. Messa State Maine School
Engineering Teacher at Seacoast School of
Technology Current interests hiking, building
things, engineering and most of all teaching
  • Ms. Young
  • Town - Rye
  • Position nuclear engineer at Portsmouth naval
  • Current interests - hanging out with my children
    improving our country's competence in STEM
  • Future goals - put siding on the house before the
    snow flies and work to make America a great place
    for my grandchildren to raise their families.

Team Goals
  • The team was started in order to bring an
    interest in the STEM areas of education to the
    seacoast of New Hampshire, Maine, and
  • The team had an aspiration to learn more about
    submarines and engeneering
  • Short term goal modify propeller on existing
  • Long term goal build a complete submarine for
    2013 based on experience and knowledge gained in

Design of Submarine
  • The Sub was designed by Wheaton Sub Works. The
    major piece of equipment that we made
    improvements on was the propeller
  • The goal of the 2011 race is to get idea for what
    works and implement that on our complete
    submarine in 2013.

  • Dead Man Switch
  • Made from a bike brake handle
  • Quick Release Escape Hatch
  • Safety Buoy
  • Built in SCUBA

Control Surfaces
  • The bow, stern plane, and stern rudder
  • Are controlled by cable wires and a lever

(No Transcript)
  • Power comes from a cut down bike system
  • The sprocket system turns a bevel gear box
  • The gear box turns the shaft using a LOVEJOY

Propeller Design
  • The propeller design was based off of the Kappel
  • Testing of the angles were performed in a small
    scale in a basin
  • Built by welding students at SST

(No Transcript)
Buoyancy Control
  • Pieces of Styrofoam were cut to about 691.2 cubic
    inches to balance out the propeller
  • 25lbs (1 in3/ 0.036127 lbs per inch3)

(No Transcript)
  • The propeller design was tested in a small scale
    basin in which we tested the speed at which a
    boat equipped with a specific pitch of blade
    traveled the distance changing the pitch to find
    the best angle to come up with the most effective
  • There were two test dives in the UNH dive basin

  • 8 Dives and lessons
  • 2 were with submarine

  • The submarine was borrowed and about 100.00 was
    spent on miscellaneous parts such as paint,
    handles for the cradle, high performance putty
    compound, etc.
  • The propeller was made out of scrap metal donated
    to the team
  • Large grant from Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for
    work on base.

More Information on Our Team
  • We all came together 6 months ago from different
  • Nobody knew each other.
  • In 6 months we have accomplished many things.
  • In part it was due to great leadership and
    initiative from our 2 leaders.
  • We are all here because we made the decision to
    do so. Not for just for school credit.
  • We worked every Thursday night for the better
    part of 6 months to get to where we are today.
  • We have created friendships and gained a great
    deal of knowledge.
