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.

  • Ever been hot but can't jump in the water? Come cool off at Carlyn's new Boat Salon! Our red buckets provide that great 51 degree, seawater for a great cooling sensation on those hot, windless days! .

  • What a morning! We have warm beautiful weather and started off seeing some Harbor Seals basking in the sun and Bald Eagles flying around as we left Sucia Island. Now we are doing deployments, learning knots, and soon we will look at plankton through the microscopes! #STEMadventures #salishseaexpeditions #sanjuanislands #suciaisland #villaacademy #scienceundersail
  • Starting our first day with Villa Academy! We decided to test if there is more plankton the deeper you go, we raised sails and are about to do our deployments to collect our data! #STEMadventures #salishseaexpeditions #villaacademy #scienceundersail
