Schmitz Park Elementary School, Trip A, Day 1, June 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

Today was our first day on Carlyn.  I don’t think it was anything we expected. We split up in two watches; water and wind. We took turns doing science and steering the boat around. We’re going to be studying plankton and turbidity in science. Read more ›

Bainbridge High School, Day 1, May 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

Less interesting, and more of an observation… the level of organization that I’ve seen during this trip is so impressive. Literally everything here is organized. Explanations of boat life from the crew are clear and concise and no one is ever left confused. Read more ›

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 ›

Pacific Northern Academy, Day 2, May 2014

Do you have any interesting stories about today….

 Today it was raining really hard and you couldn’t see the waves because there was so much rain. Then after about 2 hours it all of a sudden stopped and for the rest of the day, it was sunny. 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 ›

  • 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
