Last week a group of BHS Y10 Digital Technologies students were fortunate to visit the Xue Long. The tour of the Chinese icebreaker Xue Long was very educational and inspiring. Displacing around 20 000 tons and with a deadweight of 10 000 tons, the ship carried 2 helicopters for a variety of research uses.

The tour was very educational. The officers and the staff aboard the ship were very friendly and even though some of them couldn’t speak English well, they still tried to explain the multiple functions of the rooms to us.
