Grade 6-8: On Board with Thermal Energy

**NEW in 2016-2017 School Year** On Board with Thermal Energy is now available for any middle school grade level.

Steaming into action…

Energy makes things happen. Day in and day out, those responsible for the power plant of Midway produced, conserved, calculated, and transferred energy to successfully operate this floating city.Grade six students with docent

Come on board to learn what turned the engine turbines, drove the propellers, and powered the catapults. Be ready for climbing and exploring, for we'll be visiting several locations on board the ship that illustrated why thermal energy was vital to the USS Midway. The highlight of the visit will include an Energy Hunt throughout the ship. In groups, students will use digital cameras to document energy flow and teachers receive a CD of the students work for their post visit lesson.

Our on board workshops are designed to support NGSS MS-PS1-4 & DCI PS1.A, PS1.B, PS3.A, & PS3.C.

Program fee: $7 per student

Special Value:  Combine your On Board visit with the use of our self-guided student audio tours.  This On Board Plus program is available for the discounted rate of $10 per student!

To make a reservation, complete the online application form.

We look forward to your visit.
