Alaska students can take mining course

By January 11, 2013Uncategorized

High school seniors in Alaska can now take an introductory mining course.

It’s a cooperative effort between the state education department, the University of Alaska Southeast and Alaska’s Learning Network.

The department, in a news release, says the course begins Jan. 22 and will be live, via video conferencing, each Tuesday and Thursday through April.

It says students who successfully complete the one-semester course will be eligible to apply for paid summer internships in the state.

The course offers three university credits and a one-semester high school credit.

The department says Alaska mining companies are helping to fund the class.
