The Greenpoint Monitor Museum Honors Newest Class of Road Show Award Winners

BY Janice Lauletta-Weinmann, President, Greenpoint Monitor Museum

Since 2001, the Greenpoint Monitor Museum has been taking its show on the road, bringing educational programming to schools, churches, organizations and other museums.


At its “Road Shows,” the Museum covers topics including the histories of Greenpoint and the USS Monitor – the first ironclad warship, which was built in Greenpoint, played a key role fighting for the Union during the Civil War and transformed naval warfare. It also explores the Civil War and its immigrant soldiers, the war’s impact on slavery and its music. And it takes a close look at the engineering accomplishments of John Ericsson, the Monitor’s inventor and his work with solar engines, showing the benefits of solar power.


Participants also examine the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) USS Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and its efforts to preserve the USS Monitor and marine ecosystems.


As part of its Road Show program, the Museum includes a writing/art contest followed by its “Annual Road Show Award Ceremony” attended by parents, teachers and student award winners.  This year’s ceremony appropriately took place at PS 110, the Monitor School, home of The Greenpoint Monitor Museum’s classroom – where children visit for their Road Show class instruction.
