Join us for GulfQuest's Summer Maritime Academies! All rising 1st-6th graders are eligible. There are two week-long Academies to choose from, and each day of the Academy will feature a different maritime theme. Academy activities will be taught in our exhibit space, greater downtown Mobile & in the museum's classrooms. The curriculum for our Academy has strong STEM components, complemented by art, Social Sciences, and fun! During Academies cadets will get the chance to explore GulfQuest exhibits related to the Academy's daily theme and hear from special guest speakers. Our Academies are led by credentialed and experienced GulfQuest Educators in a safe and secure learning environment. A snack will be provided daily; campers will need to bring their own lunch.
CUP OF JOE
By General Order 99 of 1914, Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels abolished the consumption of alcohol aboard U.S. naval vessels. That decree made coffee the strongest drink on board, so sailors thereafter are said to have demanded their "cup of Joe."
