  • 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
