Description: The unique nature of Alaska, with its many rural and remote villages, provides the challenge of getting quality marine science education to students in schools which are usually multi-grade facilities with minimal staff support. Staff members of both Kenai Fjords National Park and the Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) have been successfully taking science to these students for the past ten years. In a state with such an abundance of science, natural resources, and students longing to understand them â¿¿ the Ocean Alaska Science Learning Center (OASLC) Village Outreach Program is a natural fit. With a track record of success and a recent increase in teacher participation and frequency of outreach trips, this program has the potential for continued growth and even greater success as schools are looking for unique, cost-effective, and inquiry based learning experiences for their students.
