Student Days

April 28, 2021 – Doolittle’s Raid

During Student Day, April 28 from 9am to 11am, students with their parents can learn about this key event in World War II by taking a unique tour through the battleship designed for school-aged children. The tour will visit New Jersey’s flight deck and look at the differences between aircraft on a battleship and an aircraft carrier. Tours will also visit admiral’s spaces and the bridge to see the types of spaces that this attack was planned in. After the tour, students will participate in a challenge to modify their own plane and see if their craft would succeed in their mission. Learn More
