Dr. Gradinger traveled to Sitka, Alaska for four days of educational and outreach activities as part of the Sitka WhaleFest. Dr. Gradinger started his tour with a community presentation at the Kettleson Memorial Library entitled “Trials, Tribulations, & Triumphs of Arctic Research” on November 1st. His second presentation entitled “Changing the Arctic: One species at a time” took place as part of the Sitka WhaleFest symposium.
While in Sitka, Dr. Gradinger also worked with students from two different school districts. Rolf worked with a group of students in the Gifted and Talented Program from Sitka schools during a breakout session talking about what it is like to be an arctic researcher. He also met with students from the Southeast Island School District in a special session talking about arctic science.
