Mini-Boat Lesson Connects Winterport with Portugal 

Students at Wagner Middle School in Winterport have set sail on an exciting lesson.Sixth, seventh and eighth graders in the Gifted and Talented Program, or the Explorers, are taking part in a program called Educational Passages. It’s a program based in Belfast. Students got to design a 4 1/2 foot mini-boat and decide where it would be dropped in the ocean. The students hoped the mini-boat would make it to Africa, but instead it ended up in Portugal. A man found the boat on a beach and emailed the students some information and pictures. The students hope to get the mini-boat back to Maine and send it on another voyage. To learn more click here.
