Want to see boats? Authentic maritime activity? Learn about boats? Get a job on one? Visit us to see, learn, talk to crew! You can also just sit on our deck during TankerTime and soak it all up, or bring a school group to experience all this. Sit on our deck while waiting for the NYC Ferry.
PortSide’s WaterStories education programs reflect our interdisciplinary sensibility and creativity in deploying our ship, our location and our harbor to teach many topics - often many at once!
4th graders from Washington Heights in New York City prompted PortSide NewYork to create a new educational program: tankers and oil spill prevention. The kids are part of an after-school program "First Lego League" designed to grow interest in STEM topics. It's working!
One of our #Sandy5 projects is to thank people who helped during #Sandy #recovery. It makes them (and us) feel good and provides a resiliency lesson in remembering what worked. Here's our list!
