Environmental Science Pathways

Environmental Science Pathways

The fall series begins October 1. Call (206) 443-2925 to register today!

Students in grades 6-8 can begin an exploration into environmental science and clean technology in Environmental Science Pathways, a weekly Saturday morning program for teens interested in learning more about the growing field. In this 6-week series, students will discover the science behind renewable energy, watersheds and our natural environment. Teens will explore the different roles scientists play and conduct hands-on experiments and projects out in the wetlands of Mercer Slough Nature Park and in our state-of-the-art wet lab. Students will develop leadership skills and have fun doing science, both outdoors and in!
