Whether applying techniques of angle and length measurements or understanding the chemical properties that make a boat waterproof and durable, students have the chance to learn and develop a variety of skills in a first hand, experiential way. Urban Boatbuilders projects help youth develop 21st Century social, emotional and leadership skills.Completing a boat gives participants a sense of pride and success. No Experience Necessary!
