University of Alaska Museum of the North warming up this winter season with a hunt-and-find
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Starting today, Saturday, December 4, until next Saturday, December 11, children ages five and younger can experience the University of Alaska Museum of the North winter exhibit with a playful twist.
The self-guided Early Explorers program was created with a specific goal in mind. “To keep their eyes open in the galleries and discover by thinking about what keeps animals and people warm. They might discover objects and specimens that they have noticed before and just give them access to the museum objects through a different lens”, stated by the museum’s Outreach Specialist, Elisabeth Padilia.
Four clues have been planted around the exhibit to keep young learners intellectually engaged with a “hunt and find”. Their hopes are to spark curiosity for the explorers and become familiar with how humans and animals stay warm in the winter months.
More information about the “Early Explorers” program can be found on uaf.edu/museum.
