The T3 Alaska program spans the entire state, providing T3 students the unique opportunity to visit communities around Alaska (and around the nation!) to learn about place-based problems and use their knowledge to solve community issues.
Community Partnerships & Benefits
We bring people together to strengthen our communities. Starting with high school, we prepare students with technical know-how and mental aptitude to succeed in post-secondary education and careers. We build relationships with community partners – businesses and industries – to open opportunities and connect with students.
Cordova Energy Field Trip
Students travelled to Cordova with Teaching Through Technology (T3) coordinators and explored the town, toured the Cordova Electric Cooperative diesel plant, and celebrated the annual Iceworm Festival. Principally, the students applied their knowledge of energy to an energy audit of Orca Adventure Lodge, with impressive results.
This project aimed to promote innovative thinking and improve a collaborative workspace where teams from various disciplines can collaborate, learn from one another, and spark fresh ideas. Thanks to the Empower grant, The University of Alaska Fairbanks’ (UAF) CEM / T3 Alaska Makerspace has undergone a significant modernization.
