Design a Boat

Instructor

Amy

Amy is a graduating student from UC Berkeley who thinks that all things, especially learning, should be fun! She is passionate about using storytelling as a way to develop children's voices and loves to write in her free time. If she were an ice cream flavor, she would be Willy Wonka's hot ice cream on cold days because it sounds like an interesting project to try.

About the workshop

Children will play the role of a shipwright and learn to make important design choices. Will their boat be used for speed racing or carrying mail packages? Or, maybe it solves a transportation problem in an entirely different way, like this Amsterdam bridge of boats.
