About the Maritime Immersion Camp

The Maritime Immersion Camp is a fun, maritime experience full of activities for Tasmanian high school students in Years 10 - 12. The camp will take place at the Australian Maritime College in Launceston, Tasmania.

Students will have the chance to experience fun maritime activities on the water, at university, and with our maritime industry partners.

At the camp, students will drive boats, learn how to save a sinking vessel, operate tug boats and 200m+ ships in immersive bridge simulators, design and test floating structure prototypes in an engineering challenge, plan a global shipping network in a logistics challenge, learn about autonomous vessels, meet experts and be inspired by current university students and researchers, and more.

As part of the camp, students will learn about the exciting developments and opportunities in the maritime industry and will get an introduction to university and the future of maritime.
