SEATTLE — Sail Sand Point has offered summer camps for kids of all ages for years, but this summer they’ve added a new element: STEM learning. A few years back, the national governing body of sailing, U.S. Sailing, realized a sailboat could be the perfect classroom for learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Since then, they’ve offered training for sailing programs all over the country to learn how to incorporate STEM learning into their camps and classes. Sail Sand Point is one of them!
