“Using the inspiration of Land Rover BAR’s challenge for the America’s Cup, the aim of the 11th Hour Racing Exploration Zone is to foster and ignite young people’s interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths [STEM] and inspire students to continue on to careers in these essential fields.

“The dedicated educational space brings to life critical topics around ocean health, sustainability, innovation and technology, with a series of creative displays. Visitors will learn how to make a tangible and positive impact to reducing ocean plastics, about the power of the sun as a source of renewable energy, and understand the devastating effects of invasive species, particularly the lionfish that infests Bermudian waters.”
