18 Feb ‘Park and Learn’ project offers Internet access
The N.C. Maritime Museum at Southport has a new high-speed Wi-Fi device installed as part of the state’s NC Student Connect Park and Learn program to help our neighbors and local students connect to the internet. Public Wi-Fi access is available within the exhibit hall, along Davis Street and on the Garrison Lawn.
The initiative is a partnership between DNCR and Gov. Cooper’s Hometown Strong program designed to address internet connectivity gaps in rural N.C. The program is adding free public Wi-Fi to more than 400 sites across the state, including state parks and historic sites, as well as local libraries, to provide free high-speed internet to students for remote learning.
