Teaching with Small Boats Alliance Conference

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels will host the 2017 Teaching with Small Boats Alliance conference beginning Thursday, April 27 and continuing through Saturday, April 29, 2017. The three-day conference enables participating maritime educators to facilitate collaboration, encourage idea sharing, identify and share best practices and projects, and strengthen connections between organizations and individuals. Conference participation is limited, with pre-registration needed. The conference also encourages the participation of K-12 educators interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), Career & Technical Education (CTE), and other maritime-related education components. The biennial conference includes hands-on activities, presentations, and panel discussions that encourage attendees to explore and discuss the relationships between small and large boat programming. Participants in this year’s conference will discuss how to use a maritime heritage museum as the focus of regional efforts involving other maritime organizations and school systems, and how to make stronger connections to post-secondary education and careers. Presentation topics include “Connecting Students to History,” “Success with St. Ayles Skiffs,” and more. Conference registration is open through April 14th and is $50 per registrant for a single day or $150 for all three days, including meals. *Hours may differ.
