Science night!

Students match a mountain goat skull to its hide at Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School’s science night. The program, now in its second year, started when the Anchorage Museum visited Sitka last year. Keet science teacher (and science night coordinator) Rebecca Himschoot says the goal is to give families an opportunity to connect with the school and explore science with their children. Next year’s program is already in the works, and will likely take place on a Saturday, to accommodate more people. (Photo by Rebecca Himschoot)
