Mt. Edgecumbe PreK and Headstart Programs
Once a month the students of Mt. Edgecumbe PreK and Headstart join us at the Science Center, for what has fondly become known as “PreK Palooza”. These young energetic scientists wiggle and giggle the day away, as they learn about the wildlife and environment that they live in. Here’s a cute video of one visit SSSC salmon lifecycle pre-k.

Science Mentor Program
The Science Center is proud to spread the word about a brand new science opportunity that was created in Sitka this school year, the Science Mentor Program. The program is funded by the Sitka Conservation Society and the Rural Schools Recovery Act. This program pairs Sitka High School students with a scientist mentor from the community. Participating organizations include the Sitka Sound Science Center, University of Alaska-Southeast, U.S. Forest Service, and Alaska Department of Fish and Game. These students are working on a research project with their mentor throughout the school year, learning valuable scientific methods, and earning high school credit. If you would like to follow the students’ progress, take a look at their blog. http://science-mentor.
