This is a recorded webinar from August 2020. Presented by students from the Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka, Alaska, this video highlights the important contributions to marine mammal research through an internship and technology training program, called SeaTech. This webinar is a good opportunity for anyone interested in the Arctic, marine mammals, acoustics, or exploring collaborative approaches to science-based education and outreach.
Meet this exceptional and culturally diverse group of students, their dedicated science teacher, and the scientists who work closely with them. Learn what these young researchers have found in long-term recordings of underwater sound in the Gulf of Alaska and find out how the SeaTech program is working to provide a depth of experience in oceanography to motivated high school students from communities around the state of Alaska.
