FLIGHT 9 Takes Over Seattle

November 2 was the date for our annual FLIGHT 9 day trip to Seattle. It is always a busy day, but this year’s trip was particularly jammed packed!

We left the school early (5 am!) with our bleary eyed grade 9’s on a full bus. Our first stop was the Future of Flight Aviation Center for our Boeing factory tour. This gave FLIGHT 9 a chance to see an assembly line in action – a process that relates to their science and social studies content.

Next, after a quick link at Seattle Center, we had free time to explore the EMP’s collection of science-fiction artifacts in preparation for their science-ficiton novel study.

A quick hop over to the Pacific Science Center and we all had an amazing chance to see the King Tut exhibition. This exhibit was probably the last time some of these artifacts will ever even leave Egypt. Students were well prepared for what they were going to see thanks to Seycove teacher, Esther Clark, who volunteered her time earlier this week to give a lecture to our FLIGHT 9 students on the topic of Egypt.

Another quick walk took us up the Seattle Space Needle to a wonderful panorama of the city.

Finally, after fighting with Seattle traffic, we made it to Golden Corral for a dinner stop on the way home.

A huge thanks to Ms. Erin Madsen, Ms. Vicki Digby and Ms. Esther Clark who accompanied FLIGHT teachers Ms. Petra Willemse and Mr. Bryan Hughes (Ms. Ireland, Ms. Strandt and Mr. Grant were unable to attend) on this epic day.
