Students can experience an adventure at sea without leaving port! Listen to a preview our Student Audio Tour:
We have an imaginary crew primed and ready to take your students on an amazing educational tour of the USS Midway. Come aboard and visit 40 different stops around Midway and learn how this immense ship operates. Engines roar, alarms scream, and even Sir Issac Newton chimes in a few important physics tips during the Student Audio Tour (SAT). The self-guided tour is designed to explain the “science behind the machine” and give you a glimpse of what it was like to live and work with 4,500 other men in the middle of the ocean.
The Student Audio Tour is available to student groups Monday through Friday.
