        Building Boats to Support and Inspire Students

        Learn how Rocking the Boat engages and supports students as they design, build, and launch boats in this clip from American Graduate Day 2014. Rocking the Boat is a nonprofit organization that gives students in the Bronx in New York City hands-on engineering experience. Students use the boats they build to monitor water quality in the Bronx River. The organization provides additional support through social workers and college readiness programs.

        Use the activity "Rocking the (Recycled) Boat:An Eco-friendly Rain Gutter Regatta" in the Support Materials to teach engineering skills to your students.
