One of the greatest engineering feats in the history of warfare, the modern Nimitz-class carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet. With RIMPAC, the world’s largest and most comprehensive international maritime training exercise providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the USS Ronald Reagan alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there. Rarely has there been a topic so visually suited and compelling for IMAX® and other giant screen theaters.
Aircraft Carrier: Guardians of the Sea is a multi-platform project which brings to life STEM-based education, and aims to teach students about the technologies found aboard the aircraft carrier. Many young people of diverse backgrounds are featured doing various jobs on the carrier.
