On April 20 and 21, students and staff at Homer Flex traveled to Seward. This field trip, which focused on nature and post-secondary education, allowed students to experience the Alaska SeaLife Center and Exit Glacier, as well as tour and learn about AVTEC.
At the Sealife Center, we explored the ocean’s influence on our daily lives and learned about local marine life. We even learned about cephalopods through a squid dissection. The opportunity to interact with and explore local marine animals was amazing.
The tour of AVTEC, or the Alaska Vocational and Technical Education Center, was informative for both students and staff. We learned about the many post-secondary opportunities they have to offer, including welding, culinary and marine diesel. We even got to ride on a fork lift.
We all learned new things during this trip, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Homer Foundation. Their grant allowed us to explore our region and be exposed to future educational opportunities. We appreciate the help of the Homer Foundation.
