Historical Lifeboat Volunteer (S1-S3)

The RNLI’s volunteers have been saving lives at sea for 200 years.

During this workshop, students will explore how local environments and industries provoked the establishment of a lifeboat station in Anstruther. They will discover how the design of lifeboats has developed over the past two centuries and uncover how boat development has been dependent on technological, industrial and social change.
