New class offers introduction to mining for high school seniors

The Alaska Department of Education and Early Development, the University of Alaska Southeast, and Alaska’s Learning Network have teamed up to offer a statewide introductory mining course for high school seniors.

The course starts Tuesday, Jan. 22 and is taught live, via video conferencing, each Tuesday and Thursday through April.

Students who successfully complete this one-semester course will be eligible to apply for paid summer internships in Alaska. The dual-credit course offers three university credits and a one-semester high school credit. Mining companies in Alaska are helping to fund the course.
