Each day we are going to share our adventure of the day, learning of the day, connection to place for the day, and an authentic narrative about the day. But first, we need to meet some of our expedition team and hear what they have to say about AL@Brundage:
My name is Leeann Dreher. I am a Junior at Lake City High School. I wanted to come on this trip because of my interest for science and the outdoors. Also, I think that snowboarding is going to be very exciting. The new adventures we are going on should be great experiences.
Hey there! My name is Megan Dibble. I am 16 years old and am a Junior at Lake City High School in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. I enjoy lots of outdoor activities like tennis, horseback riding, snowmobiling, skiing, and such. I love living in Coeur d’Alene because of all the beautiful scenery. I can’t imagine living somewhere else with no lush green trees, glimmering lakes, and lots of wildlife. I’m excited to stay at MOSS and experience all the new things it has to offer!
My name is Harrison Bashaw. I am excited to be on this trip to go skiing and snowshoe through the park and learn about snow science. I am also glad to be part of the Adventure Learning expedition team here at MOSS.
My name is Taylor Nope. I am a freshman at Lake City High School and the reason I am on this trip is because I really thought it would be interesting to learn about avalanche science and at the same time snowboard. I just think it would be a great experience. I’m going to be totally honest and say that I have never snowboarded before. I’m really eager to learn how to.
My name is Tyler Briner and I go to Lake City. I’m really excited for skiing and snowshoeing. I also want to learn more about avalanche and snow science. I think this is a really good opportunity and I’m looking forward to it.
I’m Patrick, born and raised in Post Falls, ID. I’ve had a season pass to Lookout for something like six years. I’m stoked to be here for the snowboarding, snowshoeing and avalanche stuff. It’s always good to ride with new people, plus these kids look like they could teach me a thing or two.
My name is Cody Jahns. I am excited to be part of the Adventure Learning Expedition Team because I am interested in learning the science of snow. I am going to apply these skills to know when it will be a good powder day for me and my snowboard. I have been snowboarding for 8 years. A little bit of information about me is that I ride motorcycles, wrestle, and pole vault.
My name is Evan Barton. I am a junior at Post Falls High School. I love science and discovering new and unknown things. I am looking forward to learning a lot about snow and kinesis. I am also looking forward to meeting many new people, and I am looking forward to working with so many professionals.
If I’m not in my classroom grading papers, you’ll find me in my kayak, on my skis, riding my bike, or hiking with my family. I guess you could say that I’m an outdoor enthusiast with a science teaching problem. I fell in love with wild places while studying alpine glaciation and geomorphology in the Wrangell Mountains of Alaska, and have dedicated myself to spreading the love ever since. That was almost ten years ago, and from my classroom in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho today I do all that I can to provide young people with similar opportunities to experience natural places while learning about Earth’s dynamic systems. I’m glad to be on board for this one!
Hola! This is Matt Werner. I’m thrilled to be here at MOSS this week with my students. I teach Mathematics in CdA, Idaho at Lake City High School. My background as an adventure guide for ROW International really has me excited to join outdoor experience with education, especially Algebra and Geometry. Being active and learning at the same time is an experience I want to expose all my students to.
Stay tuned for a busy week of snow science, healthy and active living, and Adventure Learning!
