CCMM provides boat building classes several times a year for local students and at-risk youth in partnership HYCC and Crossroads for Kids (Boston).
Truro Central Elementary School builds a boat every fall as a part of their STEM Curriculum. Our boat building program integrates STEM subjects by way hands-on learning. Wouldn't you have liked to build a boat class when you were in school? We offer inter-generational learning with our volunteers and mentors. While learning science and math, students also gain communication skills, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment.
