An in-person, outdoor program on Bainbridge Island to deepen science knowledge, strengthen problem-solving skills, and inspire teamwork!
Afternoon Ecologists is our new in-person, outdoor program on our Bainbridge Island campus for students in 3rd – 6th grades!
Designed to align with Washington’s 3rd – 6th grade science curriculum, this program will bring learning to life for students in a fun way, by building knowledge, strengthening collaborative problem-solving skills, gaining an appreciation for multiple perspectives, and practicing environmental stewardship.
Led by current University of Washington Master’s Students in Education and experienced staff instructors, the Afternoon Ecologists program will guide students in deepening their understanding of the impact science, engineering, and technology can have on their communities and the planet.
We are committed to making sure that the opportunity for in-person, outdoor learning is financially accessible for all 3rd – 6th graders who are interested in participating, and are offering tiered pricing and scholarships.
Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday Option Pricing:
Friday Option Pricing:
If our tiered pricing is beyond your reach, please reach out to Joan Hutchinson at firstname.lastname@example.org for scholarship information.
**If you have the capacity to help make this program accessible for other children, please consider adding a donation during the registration process. Thank you in advance!**

No, as the curriculum and activities for each week are the same. However, we’re still planning additional programs, so hopefully, there will be more opportunities for your child to get back to IslandWood again soon!
Yes, the program is open to all 3rd – 6th graders in the Puget Sound area!
Yes! In the registration form, where it asks you for any friend requests, you can share that your child is part of a pod, along with the name of each child in the pod that’s also signing up. Please note, your child will still need to wear a mask and participate in social distancing while at IslandWood.
As a new program, we would love to hear your feedback about how we can continue to evolve Afternoon Ecologists to best meet our community’s needs.
