Student Day: Building the Canal @ Battleship New Jersey

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

Take a deep dive into Battleship New Jersey’s Captain Menocal and learn about his grandfather, Aniceto Menocal, the chief surveyor for the construction of the Panama Canal. Learn why the canal was such a critical component of the navy’s tactics in World War II and try planning your own route from the Atlantic to the Pacific then, with the size restraints put in place by the canal, see if you can build a battleship that’s under budget and underweight but can still do the job. This program includes a tour of the ship where you can see the design choices made in order to fit New Jersey through the canal as well as the tour of the captain’s stateroom to see where the younger Menocal lived while on board.

Admission is a $5 donation for all.
