Teachers and staff participating in UNITE US, a U.S. Department of Education funded program developed by staff at the Geophysical Institute, attended the 2013 National Science Teachers Association Conference in San Antonio, Texas last week. Teachers provided feedback on the UNITE US program and informed participants on the program at the event.
UNITE US curriculum focuses on Arctic climate, interweaving Native and Western perspectives with the ultimate goal of instilling cultural pride, increasing climate literacy as a path to academic success and graduation for Interior Alaska students in grades 7 through 12.
