SailGP's Inspire Learning program aims to provide young people with the ultimate education experience through sailing.
Whether it’s an intro-to-sailing session on the water or an on-land, hands-on learning experience through the innovative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)-based modules, SailGP Inspire Learning helps young people engage with the science of sailing in a dynamic, inspirational and engaging way.
SailGP Inspire has created a series of fun science challenges for young people to try out during the school holidays. Each one takes a topic that is relevant to SailGP and the revolutionary F50 catamarans and sets an educational challenge around it. The challenges are designed to help young people learn about the science of sailing, plus garner insight into the processes that the SailGP design team go through to continually test, develop and evolve the cutting-edge F50s.
