Splash Down Science, 11-13 yrs

Live the life aquatic with us as we explore the wetlands, rivers and lakes of Snohomish County. You’ll conduct hands-on experiments to explore water properties and the water cycle, and you’ll become a water quality scientist, using methods employed by professionals. Uncover the secret lives of salmon as we hunt for their food on a local river and then find it in their digestive tract during a dissection. Observe with your own eyes why the Seahawk is the master of the wetland ecosystem. Laugh your way through our daily wet and wacky water games, and then swim, learn to kayak and fish, all in that substance we love — WATER! Instructor: Carolyn Henri
