Teacher Workshops

The Ocean Alaska Science and Learning Center Teacher's Workshop is offered each fall in cooperation with Kenai Fjords National Park and the Alaska SeaLife Center. The workshop alternates each year between focusing on materials for grade school and middle/high school levels.

The workshop brings together scientists presenting content from current research along with hands on activities that will engage students and effectively convey this information in the classroom.

Information on upcoming workshops will be posted on this website. You can also get information through your school district.
