ANGLE Receives WSSPC National Award in Excellence for Outreach
The Alaska Native Geoscience Learning Experience (ANGLE) program will receive
the 2020 Western States Seismic Policy Council's National Award in Excellence in
the Outreach category.
ANGLE is an ongoing program, developed by
Alaska Pacific University, University of Alaska-Anchorage, and Central Washington
University on a grant from the EarthScope Program of the National Science
Foundation, that offers educators
professional development workshops and helps teach student academies for the
Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program.
ANGLE contributes to increasing Alaskan resilience to geohazards through
education and the development of an action-oriented statewide learning community.
CWU Geological Sciences Research Associate Beth Pratt-Sitaula
is a Principal Investigator for the project, serving as its Assessment Coordinator,
and actively involved in the workshops and events that the program runs.
The Western States Seismic Policy Council is a non-profit
earthquake consortium for the western states that develops seismic policies and
shares information to promote programs intended to reduce earthquake related losses.
They give the National Award in Excellence in Outreach only once every four years.
Congratulations to Beth and the ANGLE program for receiving this award and for
developing this excellent program!
