Sitka Sound Science Center offers new Stream Keepers science education program for middle school students

stream keepers(1)

The Sitka Sound Science Center is excited to announce its latest, free, science education opportunity: Stream Keepers. This new program is for middle school students (grades 6-8).

The center is building a living stream exhibit and wants to incorporate local kids into the design and construction process.  The students will learn about the living and non-living factors of a healthy stream.

Then, they’ll work with Andy Case, designer of exhibits found at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, to design and build a miniature stream.  Students will not only learn the science, but also apply their knowledge by learning to teach visitors, through an interactive exhibit.

This program is open to middle school students on a first-come-first-served basis. Stream Keepers will run for three weeks in April, with lessons the first two weeks and exhibit building the third week (see schedule on flier).
