Chief Kitsap Academy, Day 2, May 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

We had a nice day of sailing. We learned how to triangulate our location with navigation. We tested the pH of the water and looked at the plankton that we had caught in our previous science sessions. Read more ›

Open Enrollment, Day 2, April 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

We learned how to raise the sails (main, mizzen, and jib sails) and navigate the boat more effectively. A big point of the learning today was how to Tack the boat, where we are sailing and completely shift the boat to go against or with the wind. Read more ›

Meadowdale Middle School, Day 1, April 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today…

We were just departing from the marina after an hour or so of safety instructions and tours, and were finally out in the water with eager anticipation. The deck member pulled out the water bottle crate and was passing out everyone’s water bottles, which were graciously provided by the staff, when someone yelled. “It fell!  The bottle fell overboard!” Read more ›

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

It was quite amazing today when going through passages having to dodge ferries that were constantly coming through, and having to set the lines and raise sails.

  • Highlighting Marine Explorers from spring of 2018. Students are using a niskin bottle to gather water samples & test water quality near Blake Island. Marine Explorers & Marine Leaders are programs for individual students interested in joining the Salish Sea Expeditions crew in a research expedition. More details on trips offered in 2019 coming soon! #studentscientist #handsonlearning #salishsea #salishseaexpeditions #inquirybasedscience #teamwork #niskinbottle #waterquality
  • Working together and asking questions! Through inquiry-based science, students test the water quality of the Salish Sea. Students use a niskin bottles to gather water samples at depths in the water column. #studentscientist #marinescience #salishseaexpeditions #handsonlearning
  • Join us in congratulating Seth Muir on his next adventure as Executive Director for Seattle's Sail Sand Point! We're grateful for his 7 years at Salish's helm, and happy to have Matt Eldridge return as our Interim Executive Director to lead the search for our next leader.

  • 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
