Decommissioned naval destroyer becomes a classroom

 


BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — Last week inside the mess hall of the USS Turner Joy, third-grader Madalyn McGraw and her friends from Gateway Christian Schools watched a tiny tin boat with a small candle inside putter across a tub of water.

"The heat makes steam and the steam makes it move," Madalyn explained, quickly catching on to the engineering of the small craft, which had a tiny tailpipe to draw in water for the steam.

"It's cool how the energy moves the boats," she said. "I love science."
