Building History Will Build Boats in August
Aug 3 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Building History Will Build Boats in August
For August, Building History’s project is Concrete Boats.  During World War II, the United States was building large amounts of ships, guns, and other tools for war. Limited amounts of steel forced the Navy to get creative and led them to experiment with making ships out of concrete. Why was the battleship made of steel instead of concrete? Find out and test to see if you can make your own boat out of various materials.
 Building History activities, which are in addition to a tour of the Battleship, will take place every Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm on the main deck outside of Turret 1 on the port side, or, if raining, in crew’s mess.
