  • Great Lakes Science CenterGreat Lakes Science Center Cleveland, Ohio
    The Great Lakes Science Center, a museum and education resource found in downtown Cleveland, Ohio that has created a marvelous venue that focuses on assisting visitors in understanding technology, science and their particular interdependence with the natural environment. Numerous of these exhibits document the highlights of that natural environment in the Great Lakes region and includes permanent and traveling displays, a restaurant, Omnimax theater and meeting space. The center opened to the public in 1996, with specific attention paid to the science phenomenon, technology and the Great Lakes environment. The center is located between the Cleveland Browns stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at North Coast Harbor on the shores of the great Lake Erie. It is one of the biggest interactive science museums in the nation, allowing visitors many opportunities to see, touch and enjoy the many hands-on exhibits. These include the Bridge of Fire, Indoor Tornado and a crushed car that you can lift yourself. The center has many daily demonstrations to educate, inspire and entertain you, with another venue called Special Traveling Exhibitions, Return to the Moon Gallery, BioMedTech: Engineering for your Health, Polymer Funhouse and steamship William G.

The exhibit area is 65,000 square feet, the Omnimax theater sits on 14,000, the Gund winter garden is 10,000 square feet, the Reinburger Hall, the Outdoor exhibit and dining decks on 14,600 square feet and the total is some 165,000 square feet plus restaurant, shopping and indoor parking garage.  Some of the great hands-on exhibits include the science phenomena floor, with over a 100 hands-on displays that will satiate the scientist in all of us; the Return to the Moon Gallery which honors the 40th anniversary of the moon landing and walk, with a Constellation program and over 20 interactive displays. The biomedical technology gallery tells about the fantastic advances achieved in modern medicine with information for all kinds of exhibits that will tell you if you should be a doctor or scientist or stay away from biology altogether. The Polymer Funhouse is only for those children 7 years old and younger, that will spend most of their time in this magical gallery. The steamship William G. Mather is a 1925 constructed steamship that helps you learn about the history of the Great Lakes, with many hands-on displays, as well as navigating along the Cuyahoga River and tieing knots. Another favorite and important display is the 150 foot tall wind turbine that creates clean renewable energy and it is coupled with a 300 foot solar array canopy, that when the two are put together provide about 6% of the center's power.

  • USS Cod Submarine MemorialUSS Cod Submarine Memorial Cleveland, Ohio
    The USS Cod is a Gato-class submarine, and is the only vessel of the navy that was named after the cod, which is a well known food fish of the North Atlantic and North Pacific. Her keel was laid down by the Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut, in 1942, and launched in 1943, with Lt. Commander James C. Dempsey commanding. Today, she sits alongside one of the docks in Cleveland, Ohio. The Cod went to Brisbane, Australia in 1943, for its first war patrol, going deep into the South China Sea, seeing few contacts and launching an attack only once, without any results. She went to Fremantle, Western Australia and was retrofitted from December 1943 to January 1944, when she left for her second war patrol. Her track was again to the South China Sea, by Java and Halmahera, sinking her first vessel, a sampan by using her gun, and a week later was able to torpedo a Japanese merchantman. Four days later, another vessel was sent to the bottom, and two days later attacked again, but had to go deep because of the escort ship's barrage of depth charges. On her third patrol, she sank a destroyer and cargo ship before being driven down into deeper depths by the heavily guarded 32 ships convoy. With a new captain, she went out on her fourth patrol and sank a merchantman and landing craft. In September 1944, she went on her fifth patrol and sank a cargo ship, and two days later put heavy damages on a tanker. In October, she found a big convoy, but without sinking any vessels she used all her remaining torpedoes. She continued to shadow the convoy and radio its position. The Cod returned to Pearl Harbor in November of 1944, and then went stateside for an overhaul, and then came back to Pearl on March 7, 1945. She sailed to the states in August of 1945, and after a few runs was decommissioned in 1946. It was commissioned again in 1951, and took part in the NATO anti-submarine training maneuvers, and again decommissioned in 1954, and put in reserve. In 1959, she was towed through the newly opened St. Lawrence Seaway to become a naval reserve training vessel in Cleveland, Ohio.
