Navy Day at the Aquarium

March 23, 1-4pm

The Navy will be on-site to demonstrate technologies used in performance of their roles for the United States.  Participants will have the opportunity to see old and new diving helmets (and perhaps try them on) and experience robotics used in explosive ordnance disposal.  Rotations of their displays will occur every 10-15 minutes.  Visit the aquarium on March 23 and get this nice bonus.  Come anytime from 1-4pm for a chance to experience and interact with this important branch of our military.
