Harvard Kent Students Build a Boat

October 3, 2013

CT1Six 5th grade students from Harvard-Kent Elementary in Charlestown launched their very own handmade boat into the water at Fan Pier Marina on Sept. 26th. The students had been working on their boat for 9 straight days and were finally able to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
The event is the culmination of a Boston Family Boat Building program which combines hands on math, a practical application of geometry and real world experience for low-income area students.
