Last year over 1,200 home schoolers participated in Home School Day at Norfolk's Nauticus, an event co-sponsored by Home Educators Association of Virginia (HEAV), an association of families throughout the Commonwealth who educate their children at home.
This year the event will take place on Wednesday, January 21, from 10 am until 5 pm, with workshops, touch-tanks, exploring sea creatures, and my favorite -- walking the decks of the battleship USS Wisconsin, the ship my dad was stationed on in the Pacific during World War II. Now that's living history!
Adult admission is $10.95 and includes up to two free children's admissions. Additional children are $7 each; children 3 and under are free.
