NEW YORK – Students from Rippowam Cisqua School, based near Bedford, N.Y., pose with Lt. Cmdr. Scott Rae (far right), commanding officer of the Coast Guard Cutter Sturgeon Bay, after a day trip on the Hudson River Feb. 17, 2010.
The 8th grade physics students spent a day onboard the Sturgeon Bay learning how a ship works so they can design a submarine for a school project. The crew members of the Sturgeon Bay, homeported in Bayonne, N.J., are active participants in the Partnership in Education (PIE) program.
