The Alaska K-12 Science Curricular Initiative (AKSCI) gives the state’s teachers a free resource to bring cutting-edge research to their classrooms.

The website features more than 300 science lessons created with the state’s grade-level expectations (GLEs) and the infusion of Alaska Native cultural knowledge and traditional wisdom in mind.

AKSCI was created by Alaska scientists like Cathy Hanks, a structural geologist who has worked with the Rural Alaska Honors Institute since 2003 to develop an introduction to geoscience class for rural Alaska Native students.
