Students Step Aboard this Winter for Hands On Learning

This winter, Adventuress once again served as a floating dockside classroom for over 300 students from Port Townsend Schools and the surrounding areas. With funding through the Port Townsend School Foundation, students in grades 1-12 came aboard to integrate their science and maritime curriculum with experiential shipboard learning. Or, in the words of a high school student from a Maritime Manufacturing class that worked weekly on Adventuress, “It’s the only hands-on class I have, which is something I really learn by. It’s much more involvement than sitting in a chair all day.”
