I was asked to help "coach"/chaperone the Tsunami Bowl Science Club this year with my friends, David (Science Teacher) and Reid (Scuba Instructor/University of Alaska Professor). We flew in to Anchorage and then David drove us down to Seward (I napped...).
|Note the purple in my hair...one of the high school boys dyed it for me :)|
|We made it!! :)|
|This octopus is supporting her eggs on the top - I just heard that they were starting to hatch last week. Pretty cool and I think pretty rare to successfully happen in captivity!|
This artwork is hung all over the SeaLife Center (not student art...). Aren't they beautiful!?!?
|I bought this one from the gift shop - Cool, huh?!?|
|More cool art - I don't think it is from a student, but I'm not sure...|
There were teams from all over the state...
Our kids did so great! They took 5th on the paper and 3rd on the presentation!! Very proud of them!
The town of Seward has lots of cool murals on their buildings. They were beautiful!
All in all, it was a great trip!! Seward was a blast and the kids were fun, too!! Then I was able to sneak away for a Professional Development conference in San Francisco with my friend, Cathy!! :)
