Charleston Race Week to host US Sailing’s STEM Educator Course
Scuttlebutt Sailing News: " . . . . Launched in 2012, U.S. Sailing’s REACH program is a combination of sailing and STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) for middle school students. Using a 10-point curriculum aligned with national school standards, the REACH program offers lessons using wind data, meteorology and more. The goal of the program is to create partnerships between schools and sailing centers that can ultimately get more kids out on the water and provide them with a unique learning experience. With programs in 200 locations and in five countries, US Sailing’s REACH program exposes an entirely new demographic to sailing that wouldn’t otherwise have an awareness of the sport. . . ."
