Mechanics and Boat Building Lesson - Oct 7-28th 2016
A group of 17 students and teachers from three continents came together for a Mechanics & Boat Building Lesson from the 7-28th Oct 2016. The first two weeks were spent at Abhaya Waldorf School, Hyderabad- India, building four 14 feet flat skiff boats, while simultaneously learning about Internal Combustion Engines, Fuels and Buoyancy in boats.

The group then travelled to a village town called Devarakota and sailed/motored in the Krishna river near Nagayalanka, from 22-27th Oct 2016. It was a multi faceted experience working with their head, heart and hands. Data for river profiles with depths and coordinates were collected and a map was drawn. A cultural Kolatam dance program was organised by our most generous and kind hosts Srini and his family.Before leaving on the 27th of Oct , one boat was donated to the village as part the community service component of the program.

It was a journey in space and time that was exciting and enjoyable, full of twists and turns. An experience that will remain with the teachers and students, to reminisce in later years.
