STEM Connection

This house is a really interesting piece of history with a cannonball stuck right in the side of it!  Inside the house, you'll find a cool maritime museum, which has a life-sized dive suit.  These types of artifacts may be of great interest to your future STEM-ologist if he or she is planning a career in any field involving a boat and/or water - marine biologist, ocean engineer, underwater filmmaker, marine environment economist...who knows!

Ideas, Notes, & Tips

The museum isn't very big, but when you're finished, you can walk across the street to a little park and watch the boats rid by on the canal.  There are some great boats in that area.
