ALISON combines educational and scientific need by

  1. supporting teacher professional development and student learning in the local context through the study of those abundant and familiar materials, snow and ice, that

  2. creates scientifically valuable data that document the lake ice and conductive heat flow variability in Alaska, and which can be used for evaluating the performance of numerical models of past, contemporary and future lake ice and heat flow variability.

K-12 science and mathematics teachers, teachers' aides and university faculty working together to learn about the nature of scientific inquiry and the variability of lake ice, snow and conductive heat flow in the State of Alaska.
