Immersion Highlights 2014-2015:
This year we learned about Monterey Bay, Marine Mammals of the Arctic, Life at the Extremes, and Secrets of the Gulf. During our year we went on field trips to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium and to Kayak Point with WSU Beach Watchers. We were fortunate to have 4 great mentors to help us with our lessons!! As our Immersion Mentoring grant wrapped up we were able to take two youth to Camp Hercules in Mystic, CT. This was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience for everyone! This fall we will run Ancient Eruptions lessons and learn about the volcanic explosion that happened on the island of Thera over 3,600 years ago.
