Teen Built DIY Submarine out of Drainage Pipe

Give me a ping, Beckerman. One ping only, please.

Many high school students are planning to lounge around the lake this summer, but not Mendham High School, New Jersey, student Justin Beckerman. The 18-year old teen will be doing the final testing of his one-man DIY submarine, made from drainage pipe:

Co-existing with Jet Skis and fishing boats in the picturesque West Jersey lake is Justin’s latest invention — complete with lights, paddles, ballasts, air compressors, 2,000 feet of wire and a Plexiglas dome top that looks like the head of Star Wars robot R2-D2.

Justin, who turned 18 last weekend, spent a month designing and five months building his 9-foot-long submarine, into which he can fit.
