Science Sets Sail Aboard the Tall Ship Clearwater
The World Science Festival joins Clearwater educators in raising the sails on the sloop Clearwater, a replica of the 18th-century Dutch tall ships that once traveled the region delivering mail and supplies. Set your course using charts and compasses, and explore the waters of New York City as a citizen scientist. Identify an amazing variety of fish and invertebrates; test for pollution levels; and learn about the pressing environmental issues impacting this historic waterway. All aboard!
