This October 19-21st, Ocean Wise will be hosting a youth leadership retreat entitled “Salish Sea Science Program”. Participating youth will learn about the seven ocean literacy principles, the history of the area and traditional knowledge through outdoor activities. Students will then work in teams to develop an online learning resource to be uploaded to Ocean Wise’s online learning environment. The resources will be a reflection of their experience at the Salish Sea Science Program, and will provide teachers with a tool to guide their class through the fundamentals of ocean literacy. To fully engage youth in ocean leadership, participants will challenge themselves in a ropes course, explore the coast in kayaks (weather permitting) and discover intertidal creatures while tide pooling.
We are looking for 25-30 students in grades 10-12 that might be interested in joining this FREE program, running October 19-21st, 2018. I have attached an information flyer and instructions on how to apply. Applications are due October 5th at 12:00pm. All successful applicants will be notified by October 10th.
