Destination planning with North Cascades Institute

[NOTE: This post was originally published on April 1, 2018]


In early February, SEAS had the pleasure of leading a “Destination Planning” activity with Student Ambassadors from the North Cascades Institute. SEAS volunteers Catherine Austin, Maya Garber-Yonts, Isadora Jimenez, Christina Morrisett, Owen Oliver, and Yaamini Venkataraman shared their personal timelines in an interactive pathway activity, demonstrating how there are many ways to get to the same place and that life isn’t linear! The students had a great time re-creating volunteer profiles and seeking out the “red herrings.”  Volunteers enjoyed talking about their science while also showing how scientists are human too – sharing stories of struggling through Chemistry, spending a summer learning to cook in Italy, and evenings teaching traditional dance.
