We support educational activities for students, teachers, and the community at large.
Use our K-12 lesson plans for your educational needs and learn how to integrate our interactive learning tools and virtual field trips into your programming.
Explore the Gulf of Alaska on a virtual field trip where you can meet the scientists and learn about this ecosystem.
Immerse yourself into interactive learning with our video game.
Undergraduate students can connect with researchers working in the field and graduate students can find research opportunities through our program.
About the Gulf of Alaska
The Gulf of Alaska is a large body of water north of the Pacific Ocean and contained on the northern boundary by the curve of the southern coast of Alaska. It stretches from the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak Island in the west to the Alexander Archipelago in the east, where Glacier Bay and the Inside Passage are found.
Many ecosystems thrive in this body of water and include life as varied as deep water corals to sharks and whales.
Not only will you get to participate in research activities, but you can also share the experience with your students and children around the world through blogs (web-based logs) and videos.

Research experience for undergraduates (REU)
The ideas for REU projects give an overview of currently interesting research topics at the NGA LTER. They range from physics to chemistry to biology. They involve retrospective analysis of decades worth of data or cutting-edge sampling aboard R/V Sikuliaq.
