Penobscot Marine Museum Visitors Center, 2 Church St., Searsport. Every year Educational Passages sends special model sailboats across the ocean to gather important environmental data. PMM Director Cassie Stymest explains how they use GPS-equipped models to spread ocean and environmental literacy. Classrooms around the world follow the models and explore oceanic phenomena.

Come and see the models close up and understand how their special features enable them to survive an Atlantic crossing and provide many schools and researchers with important oceanographic and environmental data. $5 for members and Searsport and Stockton Springs residents; $8 for non-members.
