Tall Ships America (TSA) is proud to partner with the city of St Petersburg to co-host a magnificent fleet of historic vessels at Port St Pete.

On the morning of March 31st, we hope to offer two thousand of the district’s middle school students from 19 county schools the chance to step aboard the tall ships. To do so, we need to raise $10 per child. If we raise over the $20,000 needed to meet this first goal, we will apply all additional funds towards discounting tickets for those students who visit the ships during the weekend with a parent.

By the end of February, Tall Ships America (TSA), in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Times, will deliver a Newspaper in Education supplement to each of the seventeen thousand middle school students in Pinellas County. This is a recently reworked Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) curriculum which will meet many of the district and state requirements in these subject areas. Teachers have enthusiastically said “yes” to using this publication to teach about the six ships participating in the weekend of events and to explore the hands-on experiences they will learn from when they visit Port St Pete.
