Sitka Science Sharing Night highlights work by student scientists
The event will highlight work by several student scientists from Sitka schools.
The second annual Sitka Science Sharing Night is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m., Monday, April 29, at the University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus Room 229. The event will highlight work by several student scientists from Sitka schools. During the past school year, these students have been active stewards of local forest, freshwater and marine ecosystems by developing and conducting their own research studies.
The Sitka Science Sharing Night gives students a chance to share their projects with the general public. It will be set up just like a poster session at a scientific conference, and the students will be available answer questions.
This event features students from Sitka High School, Mt. Edgecumbe High School (including students from the school’s two robotics classes), Blatchley Middle School, and Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School. Student projects are funded by the Sitka Charitable Trust, the National Forest Foundation, and the Bio-Prep Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
The Sitka Science Sharing Night is a joint project of the Sitka Conservation Society, Sitka Sound Science Center, UAS Sitka Campus, Sitka School District, and Mt. Edgecumbe High School.
