7th Grade students' culminating MDS experience
7th grade students participate in an 8-day Maritime Discovery Program experience in collaboration with the Northwest Maritime Center. This is the culminating field experience of the year, integrating core subject areas with art, PE and place-based learning. At the Maritime Center, students participate in academic classes, work in the boat shop, learn about marine trades, experience a history tour/simulator, and try their hand at knot tying. A highlight is a chance to go out on the water in a longboat – a first for many students.
