The STEM course is an exciting combination of sailing and science camp. During this three week course, participants get a thorough introduction to sailing but also take time to explore the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics behind it all. The course utilizes the REACH curriculum, developed by US Sailing, and the great outdoors to provide hands-on and interactive lessons. Participants will learn about wind and tide patterns, how and why boats float, use of simple machines, and environmental stewardship (just to name a few). You don't need pen and paper for these lessons, all of our activities are hands on and engaging. Like all of our programs, we also include fun and empowering games to help our campers develop into critical thinkers and leaders in our community. No prior sailing experience is needed for this course.
