5-8 Virtual Learning Archive

We're working hard to provide our community with educational classes, curricula, and materials online (and for download) while the museum is closed. In partnership with Kingdom Access Television, we'll be providing innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming that reaches even those with limited Internet acess.

Below please find an archive of past Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium classes that are meant for fifth-to-eighth grade students. (Find all our classes on YouTube.) For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, we will provide classes FREE.
