The PWSSC has successfully launched its next era of impact.
The Science Center’s new 5-acre waterfront campus (with advanced laboratories, a forthcoming running seawater system, and plans for a science residence and dormitory) is a once-in-a-generation opportunity that is relevant to all of Alaska and beyond. The 20,000 sq. ft. facility will make the Science Center and Alaska more competitive for national-level research funding, support high-wage jobs, generate new STE(A)M education opportunities, and advance industries such as mariculture, aquaculture, and commercial fishing.
The site is adjacent to a salmon bearing stream, tidally influenced lagoons, a shoreline accessible to anglers and boaters, and over 120 acres of upland property whose future uses are restricted to conservation. Together, the new campus and conservation easement constitute a world-class research, education, recreation, and conservation district that will benefit current and future generations.
This is a time of great change in the world that is driving unpredictable outcomes for the things that matter to all of us. With our new facilities, we can grow capacity, programs, and partnerships that will help ensure our region is a stronghold of resilience for the decades to come. We’re taking the long view, because we’re deeply invested in this place—it’s one of the last, best places on earth. Let’s keep it that way. Let’s make it better. We are so grateful to have you all with us.
You have the opportunity to support dynamic science and education at the new center – one that advances the resilience of this region and others like it around the world.Donate Now
