Departs/Returns -- Seattle -- Elliott Bay Marina

Teachers and Parents

Salish Sea Expeditions is offering a unique science and sailing expedition for students targeting middle and high school students in the Puget Sound region.

Typically, our programs are organized by teachers for groups of up to 30 participants from the same school or classroom at a time, so this in an exciting chance for interested individuals to enroll in our programs.  Salish has offered these expeditions in a limited capacity over the last several years with great success; parents and teachers of home-school students or students especially interested in science encouraged to enroll.   Please feel free to call or email Kristen Cann, Education Director, to explore whether this educational opportunity is right for your student/child.

Students who participate on this expedition will also encouraged to attend the Salish Sea Student Science Symposium June 2015.  The Symposium is a showcase of student scientists sharing the results of thier research; we anticipate 30 research groups to present and we'd be thrilled if your students/child was a part of the symposium.

Here's what a few of our past participants say about the experience:

“This trip really changed my perspective on science.  I used to not like it very much, but getting the chance to go out in to the real world and use it makes if fun and easy to learn.” --

“We got to do science! I have like 400,000 more questions!  I need to do this 200 more times!”
