SfS At America’s Cup in Bermuda
Science from Scientists was excited to be a part of the America’s Cup Endeavour Education Station in Bermuda for the last few weeks. In addition to presenting a Science Theater show, including our very own pirate, SfS also worked with many students on sailing geometry. Students were introduced to the scientific principles of sailing with emphasis on wind direction and the positioning of sails. They also had the opportunity to engineer a sail car to race downwind and evaluate the effectiveness of design and redesign for improved performance. It was a great experience to be part of this wonderful program!
