Learning to Spawn?

Today was a day filled with filming!  It started with the grand opening of the new salmon exhibit at the Sitka Sound Science Center which was awesome.

After the opening, kids were invited to partake in the “Salmon Olympics” which entailed:

1. Sprint and grab nets

2. Scoop up two of the same color water balloons (same salmon specie) but one has to have water (male) and the other one has to have water and beans (aka, eggs).

3. Pop the two water balloons into a sanitized bucket and mix (aka make babies)

4. Sprint to an incubator and pour the mixture in
