The Sitka Sound Science Center will have free admission on Thursday, April 23, in celebration of Earth Week.
Thursday will also be the grand opening of our new living stream exhibit, which was designed and built by local middle school students as part of the recent Stream Keepers program. Stop by the Science Center from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to check out our miniature version of a healthy salmon stream.
During the Stream Keepers program, the center built a living stream exhibit and incorporated local kids into the design and construction process. The students learned about the living and non-living factors of a healthy stream.
The students got to work with Andy Case, designer of exhibits found at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, to design and build a miniature stream. Students not only learned the science, but also applied their knowledge by learning to teach visitors, through an interactive exhibit.
