Whatever Floats Your Boat with Ian Gerson
SATURDAY AUGUST 19, 2017 | 12 – 3 PM
A Socrates classic! We’ll make miniature toy boats and rafts from a variety of materials and set them to sail. While we learn about the local water quality and history of New York City’s waterfronts, we will experiment with creating our own floatable sculptures equipped with wind-up propellers, sails, and other methods to make them move. We’ll test our boats in a kiddie pool before a group launch at nearby Socrates Sculpture Park Beach at Hallets Cove.
Please note: If arriving in a group of 10 or more, please contact us the week prior to your visit by calling 718.956.1819.
