Distance Learning

Denali is an environment of extreme temperatures, tall mountains, glacial landscapes, and more. The climate and landscape might be very different from where you live. Do you wish you could bring your class to Denali? If we're far from you, take part in the next best thing by bringing Denali to your classroom!

Our education staff offer free, interactive presentations that you and your students can participate in using Skype. If you would like to use the Denali experience to enhance your curriculum, please see our offerings below. Our programs are designed to meet national teaching standards and are appropriate for students in grades 3 - 6.

This year, we will offer distance learning programs from November 2013 through January 2014, with registration beginning on October 1, 2013. Our programs are made possible by the National Park Service and Alaska Geographic working in partnership through the Murie Science and Learning Center.
