Sitka Sound Science Center focused on education and research

Sitka, Alaska The Sitka Sound Science Center has been around for about eighteen months now, located in the Sage building on the old SJ campus. It hopes to be around for a lot longer, and with a focus on education and research, the science center continues to fill at least part of the gap that was left when Sheldon Jackson College closed down. That was the message at this week's Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
