Alderwood Middle School – Day 1

Trip Day: 1

Location: Jones Island

Name(s): Sophie, Mathias

School/Grade: Alderwood/Grade 7

Students from Alderwood Middle School were on Jones Island for the first night of their 4-day expedition. One of the highlights our student scientists shared from their first day was that it is fun “learning how to put up the sails, catching jellyfish, meeting new people” and “bonding with them…away from school.” They are already learning many things about our marine environment and have captured some environmental data and early impressions in their ship’s log below.

  • Happy New Year!!! We are excited to see what 2019 holds. Just like when navigating first you need to know where you are. Then you can decide where you need to go. While learning about navigation, students from Alderwood Middle School cultivated critical thinking and problem solving skills. Developing these skills onboard Carlyn can help them navigate challenges for themselves, the Salish Sea & beyond! #salishsea # navigation #handsondeck #handsonlearning #maritimelearning
