Model Boat Design

Come learn how sailboats are designed and how they work. Then build your own model boat and sail it on Lake Union Park’s model boat pond! Emphasis is placed on basic math, physics and boat design concepts.

Supports 5th grade National Science Foundation Kit: “Models & Designs”

For groups of 31-50 students please choose Jumbo Field Trip.
