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.

  • Students working together to assemble a plankton net on today's sail. The lucky plankton they caught traveled with them back to school for more student-led science!

  • We had a BLAST teaching everyone about plankton and sharing our program at the West Sound STEM Showcase today at the Kitsap Mall! Not only did we bust the microscopes out to look at plankton, but kids and adults alike tried their best to create a neutrally buoyant plankton with our plankton challenge! #plankton #stem #science #microscopes #westsoundstemnetwork #stemliteracy
  • Training Week is underway! Our Spring 2019 crew is testing their skills at sailing, science, and teaching! Here are some snapshots of our crew teaching each other. We are all teaching our fellow crew mates our professional skills and pro-tips from past experiences. #salishseaexpeditions #scienceundersail #sailing #pugetsound #carlyn #goodshipcarlyn #environmentaleducation #bainbridgeisland
  • All hands on deck! Tomorrow starts Salish Sea Expeditions spring season. Kicking things off with an amazing team of sailors, scientists & educators. Together we will instill curiosity about the marine environment through hands-on and inquiry based learning. #salishseaexpeditions #marinescience #salishsea #studentscientist #sailingforscience #sailing #inquirybasedscience
