Project USE floats again

On Sunday, May 16, students from five Newark schools launched boats they built with help from the Project U.S.E. Boatbuilding Program onto the cool waters of the Passaic River in Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood. Congratulations to University Heights Charter School, Sussex Avenue School, Discovery Charter School, Big Picture Schools, and Ann Street School!

    What a great day for the students and for the City! They applied science, math, artistic, and teamwork skills to design and build their boats.

    The students discovered Newark’s rich maritime history and the sensitive Passaic River environment. Kudos to all!
