Description

Join us for our 10th Annual Patrons of Discovery Breakfast on Wednesday, October 17!

Salish Sea Expeditions welcomes Lauren Kickham as our keynote speaker. Lauren serves as Director of Impact for Paul G. Allen Philanthropies, managing philanthropic initiatives that include Ocean Health, Conservation and Climate Change. She will be joined by former KING5 Meteorologist Jeff Renner, and a guest panel which will include Dr. Charles Eriksen, Professor, University of Washington School of Oceanography, among others. Dr. Eriksen is a physical oceanographer who delights in observing and trying to understand movements of the deep ocean using long range underwater drones developed by his research group. Their discussion will focus on exploration, problem-solving, and innovation in the marine environment. Our emcee this year will be Jeanne Goussev, Managing Director of Fiduciary Services for Laird Norton Wealth Management, mother of a Salish student, and Captain of the 2018 Race to Alaska's winning team, Team Sail Like a Girl.

Over breakfast we’ll learn about new technologies that are being used in marine exploration and what kinds of skills are critical for this next generation of doers and thinkers.

Attendees will also hear about the recent work done by Salish educators to ignite a passion for exploration and inquiry in middle and high school students from our region and beyond.

This free event is a great opportunity to learn more about Salish Sea Expeditions’ mission to connect students with the Salish Sea, inspiring curiosity, critical thinking and confidence. Attendees will be invited to make a contribution in support of “hands on deck, hands-on learning.”

Doors open at 7:00 am, with a 1-hour program beginning at 7:30 am and ending by 8:30 am.
