Sail, Steam, & Stealth
Sun, Apr 24

11:00 am - 02:00 pm

Get swept away by science at the Seaport with Sail, Steam, & Stealth. Embark on the Schooner Diligence to experience daily life aboard a ship and to learn firsthand how sailors used mechanical advantage to make for smooth sailing. Witness the power of steam close-up in a demo featuring hand- crafted vessels, then check out how this works on a large scale by exploring the steam-powered Cruiser Olympia. Buoy your physics knowledge by building your own submarine using a water bottle, and afterwards, compare it to the real deal onboard the Submarine Becuna.
