We would like to extend a special thank you to sponsors, donors, attendees, musicians, emcees, community supporters, and the UW Friday Harbor Labs staff who made the 13th annual Jazz at the Labs (JATL) fundraiser event a great success.
All proceeds collected from this event benefit the Friday Harbor Labs (K-12) Science OutreachProgram (FHLSOP) — a partnership between UW Friday Harbor Labs, the San JuanIsland School District (SJISD) and the Spring Street International School (SSIS).
This exciting hands-on science program engages all kindergarten through high school students in the process of science. FHLSOP is one of the reasons the students on San Juan Island have become leaders in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers.
The Friday Harbor Labs Science Outreach Program’s success in the schools is due to the incredible commitment and enthusiam for the program’s projects particularly on the part of the K-12 teachers, administration and students.
In addition, we receive incredibly generous support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, Dr. Carolyn Haugen, San Juan Public Schools Foundation, San Juan Island Community Foundation, Port of Friday Harbor, Friday Harbor Elementary School PTA, San Juan Nature Institute and The Russell Family Foundation.
This tremendous community support is why this unique outreach program has been engaging local K-12 students in dynamic fieldwork and relevant hands-on science projects for the past 12 years. It is our great pleasure to bring this program to the schools and work with all the individuals that make it possible.
We hope to see you at the 14th annual Jazz at the Labs event in June 2014. Many thanks and much appreciation to all involved.
