Family STEM Cruise on Mildred Belle

What’s countershading? How does an oyster eat? Can fish smell?

Bring your kids and join the Living Classrooms crew onboard our historic education vessel, Mildred Belle, as we explore Baltimore Harbor and the Patapsco River! Help the captain and crew steer and navigate the boat. Go trawl fishing, get up close and personal with wildlife, and learn all about the amazing ways the creatures we catch have adapted for an aquatic lifestyle. We’ll also try our hand at catching plankton, examine them under a microscope and find out why these (sometimes) tiny creatures are among the most important on Earth!

You must be at least 9 years old to sail on the Mildred Belle. All youth under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or suitable guardian. Lifejackets required for all youth under 18 years and will be provided by Living Classrooms, but feel free to bring your own if you have one!

Visitors with limited mobility will be accommodated as best as we can. Due to its historic design, this vessel is not ADA accessible below decks.
