Are you interested in marine science?
Dive into an underwater adventure with us as we learn about Alaska's diverse marine ecosystem. Let's get started with a couple prep classes at MSC- we'll learn about tides, phylums and more! Next we'll embark on a WILD Adventure to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and the Seward Sea Life Center!
On our first stop, MSC students will enjoy a sack lunch at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center's Bison Hall. After lunch we will embark on a walking tour of the conservation center and learn about bears, moose, muskox, wood bison and more!
Next, we will take a journey back in time and explore the unique history of the area at the Seward Museum. A museum scavenger hunt will lead students through the exhibits as they learn more about this fishing town.
Finally, a nocturne program at the Sea Life Center! We will dissect Cephalopods and learn vet tech skills at the center!
This activity is designed for students in grades 5-8
