Not only is Teach Fleet one of the world’s largest collection of Lego ships, what would already be awesome all on its own. But it it also aimed at increasing awareness for and supporting STEM, diversity and Environmental Stewardship. Like a STEM-Happy-Meal, the kids are lured in by the colorful toys, and leave with a brain full of rich content. Each ship is named after a STEM contributor who also had to overcome obstacles due to his or her gender, race or heritage.
In addition to the Teach Fleet, tomorrow also features Coast Day, with knot tying courses and a regatta at the museum (visiting the submarine Becuna is included in museum admission), and additional activities on Penn's Landing.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is sunny and balmy, so go enjoy one last day of summer at the Delaware!
