About the Class

Over the past 3 years, Thayne Yazzie has helped develop and implement Pre-K and K-12 Environmental Education and Outreach materials for the greater Washington state area. Thayne is the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education outreach coordinator for the Salish Sea Research Center (SSRC) located at Northwest Indian College in Bellingham, WA. The SSRC is a research lab that focuses on environmental issues in the Salish Sea, including topics on harmful algae blooms, and local shellfish and fish populations. The SSRC provides students and faculty with a learning environment to combine cultural, traditional, and non-traditional scientific methods to question, observe, and understand the natural environment.
