Welcome to the new GeoFORCE Alaska website! Thank you for visiting.
GeoFORCE Alaska is a four-year, field-based, summer geoscience program for high school students from Alaska’s North Slope Borough. The curriculum is developed and delivered by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in partnership with the longstanding GeoFORCE Texas program. Our mission is to raise high school graduation rates, encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors in college, and increase the number and diversity of Alaska residents entering Alaska’s technical workforce. The inaugural cohort of 20 students will embark on their fourth and final field experience in summer 2015.
