The PGST Education department has been promoting hands-on and cultulally inspired science-based learning for S’Klallam students with STEM camps throughout the year. The pictured 2018 Winter science camp focused on alternative energy sources. S’Klallam Middle Schoolers (left) are helping install solar lighting in one of the sunniest areas of the beach, the hill up from Point Juila beach at Jake Jones Park, a very popular barbeque and celebration area for tribal members.
Another science camp focused on the community garden, planting native species and learning about in-ground well systems.
