The goal of the Sailing Foundation's Middle School STEM program is to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering and math through sailing. A collaboration between the Long Beach Sailing Foundation, the Long Beach Yacht Club and the Buena Park School District, middle school students receive hands- integrated learning opportunities using sailing as a platform. BPSD teachers are certified to teach the US Sailing Reach curriculum and the sailing coaches are experienced volunteer sailors from the LBYC and LBSF communities.
The Sailing Foundation provides funding, resources and connections to ensure the program's success. 2017 is our inaugural class. Judging from some pictures, students are excited and engaged in the what is being offered.
