Gathering Place at the State Fair & Anchorage Museum Science Passports
Today on Our Community, the Morning Line crew highlighted events at the Anchorage Museum and the Gathering Place at the Alaska State Fair.
Erin Marberger, Curator of Science and Innovation spoke about some fun experiences families can participate in at the Anchorage Museum, as well as a Science Passport as a fun way to track what you've seen there.
Meanwhile, in Palmer, perfomers like AKU-MATU are proving that, while her performance can be high art at a place like the Anchorage Museum, it can also work in a less formal setting like the Alaska State Fair.
