Science of Sailing Exhibit

Ocean Quest’s Science of Sailing showcases integrate ship models with artifacts and connects them to science concepts and hands-on activities. Areas of focus include the science of simple machines and how they incorporate design, navigation, and communication. Along the way, visitors will be introduced to the unique and historic elements related to the nautical history of the Newport Harbor.

Activities include:

  • Mini-boat building
  • Sail trimming
  • Pulley races
  • Historic and iconic items, such as the Snowbird sailboat, will be on display
  • Learning about boat safety

To support this effort, Ocean Quest is collaborating with the Newport Beach Historic Society and local yacht clubs, as we all share a love of the harbor and a goal of connecting visitors from near and far to our rich heritage.
