JR Junior Model Boat Box

The Boat Box is a model wooden boat kit designed to address critical mathematical concepts. We have designed it to be an ideal solution to hands-on learning in a remote-teaching environment. Students will build their own (1”:1’) model of Community Boat Building’s Periwinkle Junior utilizing the line drawing, balsa wood, wood glue, and some basic tools provided in the kit. An instruction manual and videos developed by and for teachers are also provided as a resource for students. Students follow a design and building process similar to what we do with our traditional 10' rowboats. The building process takes them from a set of plans and a few sheets of wood to a finished boat.


Age range: 10+


Time to build: 8 - 12 hours, over at least five days

Price: $50 per Boat Box. Educator bulk pricing is available.  Please contact if you are interested in bulk pricing. Shipping within the continental US is included.

Support: Each Boat Box contains all of the tools and materials needed to build one 10" model boat. Students are supported throughout the process with a detailed instruction manual and instructional videos.
