Chicago Maritime Arts Center

Chicago Maritime Arts Center engages students in the boatbuilding process by allowing them to learn, practice, and apply academic concepts in a unique and hands-on environment that stimulates learning. While building boats, students cultivate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills to work as they follow building plans, use specialized tools and materials, and solve problems. Whether applying techniques of angle and length measurements or understanding the chemical properties that make a boat waterproof and durable, students have the chance to learn and develop a variety of skills in a firsthand, experiential way.
