Float Plan for family for your cruise
The STEM Sailing Initiative is a significant part of the National Sailing Hall of Fame's mission to engage sailing's next generation. In addition, we believe the STEM Sailing Initiative will make an important contribution to the national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) program, thereby enhancing the future research, engineering and high-tech U.S. workforce.
In our Consortium, Educators from all around the country can collaborate - virtually and in person - with Scientists, Engineers, Sailing/Marine Industry Professionals and each other to discover, develop and implement new ways to use sailing as a vehicle to teach lessons and skills that relate directly to core curriculum goals.
The National Sailing Hall of Fame STEM Sailing Navigation on Land and at Sea Course is designed for 10th Grade high school students.
Each lesson includes a PowerPoint presentation and lesson plan. There are also handouts you can download and print for your students, including worksheets and exams.
