Let us bring Nauticus to YOU!
Looking for something totally cool to do with your students? YOU can experience the wonders of science in YOUR facility by scheduling an exciting Science SOL-based Nauticus Outreach program. All of our programs are hands-on, educational and fun! They have been designed to teach your students about basic scientific concepts and their applications in the real world.
For more information, or to schedule an outreach program, please call (757) 664-1034 or (800) 664-1080 ext. 41034 or Request Group Sales Information.
Risky “Wisky” Weather
(Grades 4-7, recommended for grade 4)
How “cool” would it be to forecast the weather on a Battleship? Students will learn how weather can affect ship performance and how sailors prepare for storms at sea. Give your students the chance to explore weather phenomena as well as collect data using forecasting instruments.
Virginia Science SOLS: K.8, K.9, 1.7, 2.5, 3.1, 4.1, 4.6
Ready, Aim…Fire. Force, Motion and Energy (The Physics of a Turret)
(Grades 5-9, recommended for grade 7)
This team-building activity is based on the physics of the Battleship Wisconsin’s 16” guns. Using everyday objects, students will design and construct a working “turret”. By practicing basic principles of physics, students then compete against each other to see which team designed the most effective turret.
Virginia Science SOLS: 5.1i, 5.1j, 5.1k, 6.1 b, 6.1e, LS.7a, LS.7b, PS1.b, PS10.a, PS10.c, PS10.d
(Grades Pre-k – K)
Includes a story and science activity involving a live demonstration with one of Nauticus’ own live animals! Topics include wacky science, weather, deep sea adventures, and more! (Nauticus can bring one of our own live animals to your facility – upon request!)
(ANY grade level)
Experience amazing liquid nitrogen and combustion experiments as you discover the science of temperature and states of matter.
Virginia Science SOLs: K.1j, K.4, 1.1j, 2.1b, 2.1g, 2.3, 3.1g, 3.1i, 3.1j, 4.1e, 5.1i, 5.4, 6.4a, PS.2
Seeing the Sea
