Last Friday our 7th-9th grade River Classroom met at NMWC to continue our year long endeavor to build kayaks. This time we got all of the ribs attached.

Now that we have the ribs attached, we’re ready to add strakes. These boats are really coming together, and we can’t wait to get out exploring local riparian ecosystems on our own boats!
