The Sub Club is part of the GCSC Student Workforce Development program within Corporate College made up of a team of students who design, build, and test a human-powered submersible. The goal is to
expose participants to the field of underwater vehicles; engage students in problem-solving and creative design; and to provide hands-on, project-based activities at the high school level.

The club recently participated in the 15th International Submarine Races with their submersible and will be returning to the competition again in two years.
