Alameda Sailing News & Events
Learn about upcoming events and get to know the sailing center.
By Jamie Wai, ACSC Lead Instructor
ACSC’s science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) camps were an overall success. With the help of Bryan Leyda and other volunteers, ACSC was able to provide an enhanced US Sailing STEM program. Highlights included a cardboard boat building contest, anemometer construction, fish and squid dissection and of course- sailing! Campers also learned about hull and boat design, Plimsol marks and environmental stewardship. Not to mention the addition of Science Friday, which was a whole morning dedicated to environmental science. Campers and staff had a blast during STEAM camp. A HUGE and well deserved “Thank you” to all the volunteers and staff who made ACSC’s STEAM camp happen!
