Building and Preparing

We'll share ideas on how you can build a boat while maintaining proper safety protocols and social distancing. After all, the miniboats are almost 6 feet long already!

Global Connections

Learn about recent connections the miniboats have made so far in 2020, from floating down the Columbia River, to cruising down the coast of Maine, to travelling halfway across the world.


We'll show you how you can track miniboats at sea online and also in person with our map templates and other resources.

Finding Your Connection

We can also help connect you to one of the 145 miniboats currently scattered around the world. Some need a little TLC, but all of them have a story to share. There are many opportunities for learning this fall and we'll share some of our ideas with you.

This is the Sacred Heart Star of the Sea Miniboat with students at a classroom in Australind, Western Australia. At this Open House you'll hear how it got there, and how you can start your very own global adventure with your students in and out of the classroom!
