Student Day - Designing a Battleship

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday May 26

9:00 AM  –  11:00 AM

A special day of education for students and their parents aboard the ship.

During this two-hour session, students and their parents can experience a guided tour of the Battleship and a classroom-style lesson. Can you do a better job designing a battleship than the men who designed USS New Jersey? Look at the various parts that go into building a massive warship and examine the three primary components of a battleship: massive propulsion, impenetrable armor, and unrivaled firepower. Use this knowledge and mathematics to design your own battleship, factoring in the problems that the designers of real ships faced.
