Alaska Science Curricular Initiative (AKSCI) offers curriculum resources based on Alaska standards and Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) that were applicable at the time the program was active.

AKSCI lesson plans cover Earth, physical and biological science themes for elementary, middle school, and high school learners. While some resources were developed specifically for AKSCI, the project features lessons from the following programs:

  • Alaska Tsunami Education Program
  • Arctic Climate Modeling Program
  • Aurora Alive
  • Science Teacher Education Program
  • Volcanoes Alive
  • Alaska Seas & Rivers



*AKSCI multimedia was originally designed to play using the Adobe Flash Media Player. In December 2020, the Adobe discontinued support for the Flash Media Player. To preserve the content long-term, screen recordings of the multimedia were made and are now available as a video resource. This material is based upon work supported by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the state of Alaska or of the Department of Education and Early Development.

This program is funded through a grant from the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (ADEED).
