This issue, we’re investigating the science of swimming, from some super slick swimmers of the animal kingdom to huge cumbersome submarines! Of course, there’s bucketloads of watery fun to be had as you paddle along – experiment with water resistance, craft a funky fish mobile and cut out a spinning diver wheel. Plus, draw a swimming stick figure and make it float!
Find out how Jacques Cousteau helped develop the first scuba gear and jump into the underwater world of marine biologist and conservationist Kelly Forsythe. See if you can work out which of our fun swimming and diving facts are true and which are false and take a close-up look at orcas.
Take the plunge – it’s lovely once you’re in!
