During the school year our children’s program, KOKO Open Source, hosts a boat building workshop in which kids create row boats, canoes, functional sailboats, as well as other floating vessels of their own design. Through a variety of lessons, students in the workshop develop skills in planning, engineering, and critical thinking.

The boat building workshop culminates with a Maiden Voyage in June during which the kids put their creations to the ultimate test: going out on the water! Family and friends are invited to join students on the maiden voyage to celebrate their accomplishments! Click here to see last year’s fun.

There will be a lifeguard on premises overseeing the day’s activities. We recommend bringing bathing suits for your kids, as getting wet will be unavoidable. We launch from Plumb Beach. We will have everyone’s boats at the beach and can arrange rides if needed.

SAVE THE DATE for this year’s Maiden Voyage:
Sunday, June 12th from 11am-4 pm!

We will also gather the day before, Saturday, June 11th at the Beam Center from 2-6 to get our ships in shape! If you feel your boat is sea-worthy, no need to come on Saturday, it’s totally optional.
