"Aha Learning" in Action

Thank you for joining the 5th Annual Root Beer Float-tilla! We're proud to share with you the amazing summer we just had and some kind words from our supporters. Grab your root beer floats and watch what people are saying about our transformative model of experiential education through wooden boat building


Make Your Float
Marisa Hodes, Wind & Oar Board Chair, and her family return this year to once again demonstrate what to do (and what not to do) when building your root beer float.


A Message From Celeste
Board member Celeste Janssen invites you to support Wind & Oar (and enjoy your Root Beer Float!)


Annabelle's Aha Moment
"I was never good at math," Annabelle used to tell herself, but building a boat changed that!


Ayanna & Kandyce
They thought building a boat would have to take years. Surprise! It only took nine days! Check out how they plan to apply this experience to their lives.


What Does the Future Hold?
Imani, Anabelle, Angelica want more experiences like this and even see themselves continuing to help build boats with kids.


Full of Surprises
The whole experience was a surprise to these two summer campers, especially seeing what they could accomplish with teamwork.


One Final Word
Thanks for watching our Root Beer Float-tilla video series. Here’s one last message from Jessica Howard, President of Chemeketa Community College and member of our advisory board, about the profound impact programs like Wind & Oar can have on individual students, our educational system, and our entire future. It's bigger than the boat!
