The STEM Education Center at TCNJ has partnered with Just-Sailing to bring you this FREE workshop where you will learn techniques in STEM and project-based learning that you can take back to the students and staff at your after-school programs, adding a new dynamic to strengthen your existing programs.

Your instructor, Chris Anderson, will lead you through a jam-packed day of activities covering topics such as:  Sketching & Drawing, the Engineering Design Process, Hydroponics & Biotechnology, LED Light-Up Circuits and Recycled Bottle Rockets – just to name a few!

Participants will have the chance to win prizes in mini competitions, and everyone will leave with plenty of models and handouts they can use at their local programs.

Dates: April 4th, 18th, 25th, and May 2nd

Time: 12:30 – 3:30

Ages: 10 and up

$150

Description: Learn why some boat designs use one hull or two. How does sail area compare to boat speed and why? This session will compare boat designs in races the students design. They will take measurements from the sail and do mathematical calculations, using both model boats and boats they will sail. The class includes time on the water learning to sail and apply the concepts from the class.

Learn to Sail with STEM

Just-Sailing offers 3 classes based in the roots of science, technology, engineering, and math with sailing as a platform for exploration. Classes are broken into time on the water and time in the boathouse questioning and problem solving. All classes are held at Lenape Park East in the Boathouse by the Lighthouse in Mays Landing. All materials are provided including boats and lifejackets. Students should dress to be outside.

All classes will be held rain or shine. There must be a minimum of five students registered and paid in full to hold the session. Please register on our website at www.just-sailing.org all checks can be mailed with the attached participation form to Just-Sailing P.O. Box 498 Somers Point, NJ 08244
