Skippers is an educational offering for all area 3rd graders. It is sponsored by Ingram Barge Company and includes a tour of the center’s exhibits, time in the navigation simulator, a classroom session and the film shown in the theater. The teacher may choose from a list customized programs that focus on science, math, economics, art, etc. Special emphasis is placed on the towing industry and how it affects our nation’s economy.
