On Friday 02.04.11, we visited the MMA construction site as an office. It was a great chance for everyone to see the building in person, and give Ryan, Mark, and Tom a hard time about what we saw. In all seriousness, it is going to be a great project for the Academy.

2) Ryan Senkier explaning the whys and wherefores. This photo is taken looking toward the main entry at the ground floor. The circulation desk will be just to the left side of the image, and the entry is just to the right.
3) Tim Ippolito says, "Oh, I could totally learn to pilot a ship in here". This room will be the home of the bridge simulator, a panoramic classroom with hardware and software that can simulate any harbor in the world, in any weather condition. The cadets learn to pilot ships in this room.
