Using math to build a boat

In collaboration with the Milwaukee River Revitalization Foundation, New School for Community Service students are putting their math skills to work in building an 11-foot wooden skiff from scratch. In work space provided by MPS Facilities & Maintenance, the crew, led by teacher Dave Cusma is integrating math and manual arts to create a “marine work of art” that will be launched in the Milwaukee River this spring.
