The Alaska SeaLife Center relaunched its educational preschool program last week, according to a press release from the center.
The series, “Small Fry School,” is a 30-minute program about marine life that can be livestreamed on the SeaLife Center’s YouTube channel every Tuesday at 11 a.m.
The program was previously held in person for the young students, but has since been shifted to a virtual format because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Alaska 529, the program’s sponsor, donated $20,000 last year so the SeaLife Center could continue the series in a virtual format.
Children can tune in on YouTube for marine life class each week, which will include a story and different activities for both kids and guardians.
Additional supplies don’t need to be purchased, but “some common household items” will be recommended for certain activities, according to the press release. Recommended materials will be posted to the SeaLife Center Facebook page before each class.
To tune in to “Small Fry School” visit www.youtube.com/user/AKSeaLifeCenter. The next session will be Sept. 21 and 11 a.m.
