Family STEM Sail on Sigsbee

Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park


1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
1417 Thames Street
Baltimore, MD 21231

Living Classroom Foundation’s Skipjack Sigsbee, is looking forward to a family oriented Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) sail on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

What’s counter-shading?  How does an oyster eat?  Can fish smell?

Join the Living Classrooms crew onboard our historic education vessel, Sigsbee as we explore Baltimore Harbor and the Patapsco River! Help the crew raise the sails and navigate the boat. Go trawl fishing, get up close and personal with wildlife, and learn all about the amazing ways the creatures we catch have adapted for an aquatic lifestyle. We’ll also try our hand at catching plankton, examine them under a microscope, and find out why these (sometimes) tiny creatures are among the most important on Earth!

 

*Visitors with limited mobility will be accommodated as best we can. Due to its historic design, this Chesapeake Skipjack is not ADA accessible below decks.  Please contact us in advance should you need special accommodations.

**This is a rain or shine event.  As long as it’s safe, we sail!  The crew will notify you in advance if the weather forces us to cancel the sail.
