Our mission

Our mission is to serve under served schools and diverse communities with a LEGO based maritime themed STEM program featuring 16 "Build-A-Ship" hands on LEGO shipbuilding kits .

Including schools in diverse under served communities in the ports of New York , Philadelphia , and Baltimore . This has been difficult without consistent sponsorship.

We need your help to continue our work! In these communities we'd like to continue to have events and to let kids keep the LEGO ship kits that they build, but this is very expensive.

What can your gift do? It can help us give LEGO ship kits to Kids!

Your gift can help under served kids learn about all kinds of ships, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), history & diversity through our ship biographies, and of course LEGO, LEGO, LEGO.

16 different TEACH FLEET ship kits from tugboats to tankers 

16 different environmental & marine science topics from estuaries to deep sea ecosystems

$25 donation buys one TEACH FLEET ship kit that can make all 16 ships.
$50 donation buys 10 TEACH FLEET ship kits.
$200 donation underwrites 1 local TEACH FLEET event
$500 donation underwrites 1 out-of-state TEACH FLEET event

What can your gift do? It can help us teach Kids about the diversity of STEM history!

You can also help the TEACH FLEET to teach under served kids about the contributions of women and minorities to science, technology, engineering, and math through the use of LEGO ships named for them by underwriting TEACH FLEET LEGO ship displays.

Over 200 different types of ships from tugboats to tankers named for women and minorities. 

$200 donation can underwrite 1 local TEACH FLEET event
$500 donation can underwrite 1 out-of-state TEACH FLEET event

Hey Everybody!

"Deepsea Dawn" Wright just donated $500. She said
"So honored to support one of the most unique and amazing STEM projects out there! Build on!"

Thank You Dawn! You are the embodiment of what this program is all about. A Geo scientist and ocean explorer who just happens to be an African American Woman. I'm glad Dr. Amy Blatt recommended I name a LEGO ship in your honor and share your amazing biography.
