Hands-on science learning in Dillingham

Mar 27, 2015

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.
