Boat Design Family Workshop

June 10, 2017

Speed and Innovation in the America’s Cup

Workshops at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.

The boats that race in the America’s Cup are unlike anything that’s ever been seen on the water. They use the world’s most advanced aerodynamic and hydrodynamic technology to fly over the surface of the ocean at speeds up to 50 miles per hour!

In this workshop, we’ll explore how the boats go so fast, with demonstrations of hydrofoiling drones and catamaran hull designs.

We’ll finish by building and racing our own mini catamarans!

Price per child: $10 for Members, $15 for guests; Parents FREE! (plus Museum admission)
