Why are the fronts of Navy ships pointed, but submarines are round? Hull designs are constantly being tested and redesigned to ensure maximum displacement and speed. Students will design their own ship hull and test its effectiveness in the water.
All home school families without military ID or base decals on their cars should use the 11th and O St. SE gate to enter the Washington Navy Yard.
Driving directions and maps of the Navy Yard are available at: http://www.history.navy.mil/branches/org8_Visit.htm
