  • Parts of Carlyn and learning how to trim sails! #salishseaexpeditions #sailing #sanjuanislands #orcasisland
  • The sun came out today! We are here with the Island School (aka the Vaquitas) raising sail and learning how to use the Niskin Bottle. Here's to the good weather! #sailawayyeah #islandschool #salishseaexpeditions #STEMadventures #studentscience
  • Look at how our student-sailor-scientists observe phytoplankton. Kirsten taught them well. 😊 They're working together to assemble the niskin bottle and the plankton net! They are doing multiple trials to answer a research question they came up with themselves. They want to know if certain depths contain greater amounts of silica! {NB: they even helped crew with photo taking and ghostwriting Instagram posts!}
