NORFOLK, Va.— Licensed teachers throughout Virginia and North Carolina will now receive free admission to Nauticus starting in October and continuing indefinitely.

Nauticus says this is a way to give a sincere “thank you” to teachers who have "adapted, innovated, and persevered throughout the course of a very difficult year."

“Our entire organizational focus is education,” said Nauticus executive director, Stephen E. Kirkland. “And I can tell you as the parent of a third grader, I have a very personal appreciation for how critical our teachers are, especially right now.”

With free admission, teachers will have the opportunity to enjoy Nauticus’ newest exhibit, Voyage To The Deep. The STEM-based experience (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) transports guests into the deep sea, where they can take the helm of a submarine, encounter mythical sea creatures, and pilot their own underwater robot. Nauticus admission also includes access to the Battleship Wisconsin, the largest and last battleship built by the United States Navy.
