Many Boats, No Two Alike

Our projects use a STEAM focused curriculum to enrich classroom studies. By integrating multiple fields of learning, each is given context and meaning. The Bevins Skiff is the fundamental boat build for 5th through 8th grades and in summer camps. 

Bevins Skiff

Our classes have built a number of variations of this boat with and without a sail. 

Become a Sponsor

Sponsored projects are ones where students build a boat to order for a project sponsor. The sponsor pays a fee that covers some of the project costs and then owns the boat when the students are done. These are generally long term projects, taking 6 months or more, with the boat being built using traditional wooden boat building techniques.
