Student Water Quality Evaluation Project

In partnership with Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center, this project will expand Community Boat Building’s experiential learning program to include hands-on science activities that will offer underserved 5th grade students in Boston the opportunity to advocate for the environmental health of Boston Harbor. Students will use the rowboats they build at Community Boat Building to collect water quality data throughout the year, and present findings to local yacht clubs and boating centers to increase understanding and stewardship of the Harbor.
