On March 27, curious minds in Dillingham enjoyed UAF's community science night in the middle school gym. Participants had the chance to generate human-powered electricity, explore the solar system inside a blow-up planetarium, and interact with goats and bunnies.
The event gathered scientists from the UAF, the Bristol Bay Campus, UA Museum of the North, 4-H, and the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.
Each year the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Alaska Summer Research Academy sponsor two of these science nights in rural communities; they’ll be in Nome later this spring.
