Over 250 Alaska Resource Kits were distributed throughout Alaska this year!
Alaska Resource Education provides educational materials, in the form of Alaska Resource Kits, to Alaskan educators free of charge. The kits contain nearly $400 worth of materials to help provide students and teachers with balanced information about Alaska’s rich heritage with mineral, energy, and forest resources.
The kits have been accepted in all of Alaska’s 53 school districts and demand continues to grow. Over 200 kits are distributed each year and over 1,500 Alaskan educators currently use the kit’s materials.
Alaska teachers and industry scientists continually revise and update the kits to keep them current. The kits are so flexible they are used in classrooms from kindergarten through high school for science, math, social studies, Alaska studies and other subjects. Recently, Alaska Resource Education has incorporated the newly approved Alaska Science standards into its curriculum.
