Build a Canoe At the Zoo
Summer Day Camp!
Urban Boatbuilders and Minnesota Zoo collaboration
Unique Opportunity for Youth Development Organizations!
If you are interested in getting 10-14 of your youth involved in hands-on learning, STEM and environmental science projects, or the engineering design process, this program is what you have been looking for!
Rising 7-9 graders spend two intense weeks building a canoe and learning on-water paddling skills, as well as engaging in environmental research topics and gathering data for research questions posed by Minnesota Zoo staff. At the end of the two weeks, students will have a boat launch celebration to paddle the boat they built and present their research findings. Boats built by students will be used by Zoo staff to conduct future research and data collection.
We are able to offer this fully funded opportunity to a qualifying youth development organization. Transportation is not a barrier.
