Proud to support our community
The College of Natural Science and Mathematics is proud to support the continued commitment to hands-on learning in our community. Such opportunities are available through entities such as the Fairbanks Children’s Museum, citizen-science programs such as the Winterberry program, the Folk School Fairbanks, science-based foster care programs, and countless other day camps and schools, which have grown and are now thriving in our Fairbanks community and beyond.
Some of our outreach events and programs:
• Science Potpourri—a science open house event for parents and children
• Alaska Interior Medical Education Summit (AIMES)—October job fair geared toward high school and college students interested in medical professions
• Astropalooza—Society of Physics Students astronomy open house and physics demo nights
• GeoFORCE Alaska—an outreach initiative designed to increase the number and diversity of rural and minority Alaskan students pursuing STEM fields, especially geology.
• Biomedical Learning and Student Training (BLaST)— engages students from diverse backgrounds, especially those from rural Alaska, in biomedical research.
• Alaska Statewide High School Science Foundation—students make oral and written presentations about their original research and can earn scholarships and other prizes at the regional level, and beyond.
None of what we have accomplished so would be possible without the assistance we have received from our devoted volunteers, kind friends, and generous sponsors. If you are interested in donating or volunteering, there are a number of ways to lend your support.
