Scientists do amazing work in remote and challenging environments. Virtual Field Trips are a great way to ‘bring’ students into the field, lab and your office … all from their own classroom. COSEE-Alaska and the Alaska SeaLife Center
have teamed up to create these engaging, educational, on-line resources. To learn more, take a trip! (see links below). The Alaska SeaLife Center is looking for additional virtual field trip opportunities and can work with researchers to meet their broader impact requirements.
Meltdown: An Icy Adventure
Watching Walrus: A Bering Sea Adventure
seeks to enhance ocean and climate change literacy in formal and informal audiences and the public. The Center engages ocean scientists, teachers, informal educators and community members in the region in a broad range of programs, including statewide ocean science fairs, teacher workshops, expanded Communicating Ocean Science Workshops and hands-on sessions for scientists at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium, plus distance learning and virtual field trips through our website.
