Fairbanks students to walk on water

Students across Alaska will soon walk on water as they explore the Pacific Ocean with one of the world’s largest maps. An outreach coordinator from the University of Alaska Fairbanks will visit elementary and middle schools in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Alaska rural communities from Nov. 11 to Dec. 12 with a map taller than a three-story building. The map will give students an interactive experience that enlivens the study of geography.
