A mystery has taken place at Sitka Sound Science Center, and we need Sitka’s youth sleuths to help us solve the caper. Crack the case by using investigative techniques to eliminate suspects and earn your very own Eco-Detectives button upon completion of the investigation.
Students can help solve these cases by joining the fun from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Feb. 1, at the Sitka Sound Science Center (Note: this is a teacher in-service day, so no school). This month’s case is “The Case of the Shrimp Snatcher!” Students will help solve the mystery of which aquarium critter is snatching up all the shrimp. The Eco-Detectives series is hosted by the Sitka Sound Science Center and the Sitka National Historical Park.
The series, which is offered free to the public, is designed for youth from kindergarten through sixth grade, and is self-paced. On average it takes participants between 30-45 minutes to complete the program. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult.
