  • Every SOUND Expedition starts with a question. Student scientists use the scientific method to gather data make observations in the Salish Sea. A throwback to last spring when the Girl Scouts asked the question of “How does copper effect marine life?” #salishseaexpeditions #salishsea #girlscouts #scientific method #stemlearning #marineclassroom #girlsinscience
