of the Program:
Allows students to participate
in the real life, hands-on activity of sailing a traditional
tall ship - both in "living history" (sea-manship) and a
lesson on team-work, discipline and trust.
Enables Teachers to use
the American history embodied in the Sloop Providence as
a starting point for educational activities. The stage of
the Sloop Providence will allow us to focus on maritime,
cultural and ecological history of the area.
Includes a wide variety
of subjects: applied mathematics (through navigational techniques);
discussion of man's impact upon the balance of nature, meteorology
(weather); and physical sciences (i.e. movement of air and
water, mechanical advantages of rigging, how these are used
today as they were in the 18th century for effective transportation).
Trips are 3 hours
