Wind & Oar programs give kids hands-on woodworking experience while making math and science relevant. We provide a space to develop critical thinking, team building and leadership skills, all of which are important aspects of successful career development.
~ It's bigger than the boat! ~
How we do it
We use a range of boats, from card stock models to complex sailboats, as platforms for reading and interpreting plans, developing a course of action, anticipating actions, and finally, executing the process in a team dynamic with the tools available. These tools include traditional hand woodworking tools as well as modern shop tools.
