GCBSR Education Day
Teachers, bring your class to race week
Our education program brings young people living near the Bay aboard our schooners for a unique and exciting experience. Many of the schooners have well-developed programs with professional educators that make these vessels very effective learning platforms in STEM, ecology and history. Students enjoy hands-on lessons that promote awareness of the Chesapeake Bay’s maritime heritage and encourage the preservation and improvement of the Chesapeake’s natural resources.
Our education program can accommodate 100 students in Baltimore on the Wednesday of race week, and 100 students in Norfolk on the Monday after race week.
