Student Day: Design your own Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey
May 26 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Student Day: Design your own Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey

LEARN ABOUT BATTLESHIP DESIGN IN THIS MONTH’S STUDENT DAY

On Wednesday, May 26, at 9am, 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.

Tickets are a $5 donation and all students must be accompanied by a parent.

This program is recommended for grades 3-8.

  • Adults are required to stay with children for their entire visit.
  • All guests must pass a health screening which includes a contactless temperature check, wear a face covering and practice social distancing of six feet at all times.
