SBMM is hosting the visiting tall ship Bill of Rights, for a week-long Marine Science Program, kindly sponsored by Roger and Sarah Chrisman. This program sends 6th – 9th graders out to sea on a 3-hour cruise, utilizing their math and science skills in an ocean setting. The American Tall Ship Institute (ATSI) operates the Bill of Rights, a 137’ wooden schooner built in 1971 in South Bristol, Maine.
