Based on the success of our one-day sailing and STEM program, Set Sail Learn, as demonstrated by very high demand for the program as well as through evaluations and testimonials, TISC has developed a more in-depth program, Sailing to Save the Sea (SSS). Through in-depth and hands-on exploration of San Francisco Bay watershed pollution issues, SSS aims to improve students’ understanding of their local watershed and risks that affect it, while also encouraging stewardship actions and environmental awareness, and cultivating an interest in sailing.
SSS is a five-day program whereby days one, two and three are spent onsite at TISC’s Treasure Island facility and days four and five are situated within students’ school classrooms. Onsite visits will be facilitated by a TISC educator and will be split between time classroom and on the water which is supervised and handled by TISC’s sailing instructors.
