Welcome to the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame's Education Site
The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is a non-profit educational institution. Our goal is to bring together educators from across the country to share resources and to use our website to provide virtual displays for learners of all ages. Our national consortium of organizations and individuals using sailing to teach math and science is only one example. We have also created an Education Advisory Council comprised of experts in mathematics and the sciences, sailing professionals and educators.
This section of the website is constantly evolving - we will be adding to and enhancing these pages often, so please check back whenever you're looking for a way to incorporate Sailing into your teaching objectives.
