Boat Naming Competition

The boat naming competition has now finished. We had a brilliant response, and we’re pleased to announce that the Derby River Boat will be called “Outram”.

Online Activities

Sadly we have had to postpone the launch of the boat due to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, we would like to try out some of our STEM activity packs. We hope that these activity packs will help keep children occupied whilst stuck at home over the Easter break. Please click on the link below to download our “make a paper boat” activity pack. Please decorate your boats, take photographs and send us your pictures via social media (see below).
