STEM Sail Project

The STEM Sailing project kicked off on Friday with a presentation from a man that has traveled the world pursuing his dreams. Dr. Ian House, an engineer from Mercury Marine gave a presentation on taking full advantage of opportunities in life, of saying "yes" as openings are presented, of a life (career) of "messing about in boats", and how a kid who's good in math from Brighton, England winds up as Director of Environmental Engineering for Mercury Marine and Sea Doo.  

A few of his life lessons included:

  • Be open minded and adventurous
  • Take advantage of good opportunities
  • Think long-term when given an opportunity
  • Try to fulfill your dreams
  • Money isn’t everything
  • Teaching improves your knowledge
