           Two Kodiak Middle School students are in Anchorage this week participating in the STEM Career Explorations program.  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and the explorations program encourages kids to pursue those career fields by allowing them to participate in STEM-related activities at a younger age.
             “So anything from going down to the Sea Life Center and dissecting a squid to building a computer with ANSEP.”   
              That’s Josephine Edwards-Vollertsen, a regional director for the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, also known as ANSEP. ANSEP hosts a Middle and High School Academy that provides a similar introduction and familiarization with STEM, but Edwards-Vollertsen said the career exploration sessions serve as an “inbetween” for the two academies.

           Both of Kodiak’s governing bodies will meet tonight. The Kodiak City Council will hold a regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers and hopes to pass the FY 2015 budget. Other items on the city’s agenda for tonight are a series of resolutions that allow the city to accept grants from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation for the Aleutian Homes water and sewer replacement project, in addition to issuing a permit to the American Legion Post 17 to use public property for Fourth of July celebrations.
           The Borough Assembly will meet at the same time tonight, below the city, in the borough conference room. The assembly’s work session includes a discussion of Kodiak High School furniture, fixtures and equipment, as well as facts and figures related to the impending garbage rates increase. The assembly will also talk about a possible Marine Highway Transportation Advisory Board reception here in Kodiak.
            Both meetings are open to the public and the council’s regular meeting will be broadcast here on KMXT.

Coming up this week, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council meets in Nome, Senator Mark Begich speaks with Kuskokwim fisherman about subsistence, the U.S. Senate looks to fund federal programs important to Alaska’s fishing industry and sport fishing closes on parts of the Kenai Peninsula. All that and a social and cultural harvest of king salmon, coming up, on the Alaska Fisheries Report.

           The ground-based missile defense system, which includes interceptors at Fort Greeley, failed at target practice over the Pacific last year. Now the Pentagon is asking Congress for money to overhaul the system. The budget request shows Alaska is likely to remain central to missile defense as the system matures, but as APRN’s Liz Ruskin reports, Kodiak is likely to miss out on the action.

Kodiak Refuge Offers Programs For All Ages

            The Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center typically has educational programs year round, but things really pick up during the summer months. Yesterday a handful of refuge staff members spoke on KMXT’s Talk of the Rock, and detailed some of the activities and programs happening over the next few months.
            Malia Sutphin runs the refuge’s F.U.N. program, which stands for families understanding nature. It runs year round, and usually takes place on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. Sutphin took over running the program when she moved to Kodiak in May. It’s open to families with children ages 3-5 and focuses on a variety of nature and environment-related topics.
            “Sometimes it’s specific to Kodiak and other times it’s more general and can be more about Alaska, stuff about Alaska.” 
            Sutphin worked with adult programs at the Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward before coming to Kodiak and said she had to adjust her teaching style to fit the much younger age group. She said the most important thing she’s learned is how to get kids   

            “If you can get a kid excited about something, it causes them to care. So that’s kind of my motivation or my goal. Even though it can be really simple if you know, I can get them excited about who has horns or what animals have antlers, you know maybe they’ll be able to understand the differences and then when they see an elk or a deer they’ll be able to say, ‘hey mom, look at the horns,’ and understand the difference and then care about those animals.”
