First Consortium Newsletter 

Send Items of Interest from Your Program

NSHOF is delighted to begin publishing a Consortium Newsletter featuring information about Learning Math & Science Through Sailing programming across the nation. We will also post upcoming events of interest to Consortium members, encourage interaction and post jobs that you may wish to share with other members. You can send contributions to Susan Nahmias, and include any photos, pdfs and/or weblinks that we can embed. Please understand that we will most likely include an overview of what you send plus one photo in the Newsletter and then add links for more information.

NSHOF will select highlights from submitted items to blast on a regular basis to all of our contacts across the country to let them know about the great work Consortium members are doing to engage the next generation of sailors!

Consortium Members Engage Students in Annapolis

Pride of Baltimore II and the Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean opened their 2012 educational outreach season at the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame docks in mid April to the great pleasure of hundreds of elementary, middle and high school students. NSHOF was delighted to assist their partners by arranging student visits for three days.

Pride II was sporting a new dockside curriculum that features the War of 1812 as waged on Chesapeake Bay in similar vessels. Youngsters visited three stations on deck and interacted with the engaging crew to learn equipment and rigging, sail and hull design and navigation - all related to the era. 

Rachel Miller and the Rozalia Project began their visit with an assembly at Eastport Elementary School and then moved to the NSHOF docks for the next two days to search for trash with the help of elementary through high school students. In addition to the expected discoveries, the robot raised a 19th century utilitarian jug (authenticated by the Historic Annapolis Foundation).
