Urban School Programs Coordinator Celina Steiger stands in a circle with Community Waters students while they investigate a puddle on the sidewalk.

Join IslandWood Urban School Programs staff to dive into local water systems through hands-on activities designed to engage your students in localized science learning. We’ll explore stormwater, wetlands and engineering around Roxhill Bog in West Seattle using engaging and meaningful activities you can use with your students to connect to the water systems in your school and community. Be prepared to be outside and active, no matter the weather! The activities and content in this session are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.
