SAYC Stem + Sailing Program Information
SAYC is proud to offer an afterschool program - STEM + Sailing - for all sailors, beginner - advanced. STEM is for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students only. Utilizing US Sailing Reach program curriculum and content and taught by a professional educator and US Sailing Certified instructor, STEAM + Sailing is the ultimate afterschool experience in St. Augustine!
As an adventure activity, sailing forces students out of their comfort zones and out from behind their desks (and screens). Sailing is more than just hands-on; it’s a full body, multi-sensory experience. “Adventure Education: Theory and Applications” by Prouty, Panicucci, and Collinson defines adventure education as “direct, active, and engaging learning experiences that involve the whole person and have real consequences.” These authors see adventure education as “a major educational trend” because it heightens learning and yields outcomes such as personal growth. Sailing gives students experiences they just can’t get on a field, diamond, or court, which makes it a natural partner for STEM education and an effective supplement to traditional education.
Sailors commit to 4 weeks, Wednesday afternoon sessions only. Explore Salt Run and beyond, and have fun sailing!
