This summer, I was a part of week one of Summer Academy – Water World.

Dr. Boomhower and I thought it would be fun to take students to different areas of Washington, including: Bremerton, Discovery Park, the Seattle waterfront, and even taking the ferry to Whidbey Island.

One of the most memorable days for teachers and students of Summer Academy-Water World was when we visited the Bug Museum in Bremerton! At the Bug Museum students were able to learn about different types of bugs, use magnifying glasses and microscopes to examine bugs and insects, view live reptiles, and touch the Museum’s tortoise. The students could not get enough of the the reptiles and insects! Here is a photo (above) of two students putting on googles to show them what it’s like from a bug-eye-view.
