Nauticus to Host Special Day for Homeschoolers

Nauticus will welcome homeschoolers on Thursday, February 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On this special day participants receive discounted admission, a free gift shop coupon, Nauticus & Battleship Wisconsin tours, special hands-on science programming and more!

Want to learn about sea creatures? Stop by our Shark Lab and Horseshoe Crab Cove. Weather fans should experience Science on a Sphere, a six foot weather globe, to learn about ocean currents around the world and new data on recent weather and geologic events. “Creature Feature,” a live animal presentation, is great for younger children but fun for all ages. Make sure not to miss a live “Cool Science” presentation in the Nauticus Theater! Participants can also take home free educational materials from the NOAA Educator Resource Center.

The cost for Homeschool Day is $10 per adult and $8 per child aged 4 – 17. Children ages 3 and under are complimentary. Pre-registration is not required. Please note that this admission price does not include interior tours of Battleship Wisconsin, although discounted tour tickets are available upon arrival on a first come first serve basis. Battleship main deck tours may also be purchased for an additional $3 per person.
