Publisher: Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center
Description: The 2008 ATEEC Fellows Institute brought 18 community college and high school instructors from the environmental sciences to Alaska. They created virtual field trips using Google Earth. In this beautifully designed virtual field trip your students will take a trip through the Prince William Sound from the Alyeska Marine Terminal. From there the class will explore the path that the oil took as it made its way hundreds of miles down the coasts of Alaska. Learn about the environmental impacts of the spill and more. A great resource for learning about this disaster. In 1989 the Exxon Valdez oil tanker hit Bligh Reef through the passage of Prince William sound near Valdez Alaska. This dumped millions of gallons of crude oil into the Pacific. In this nicely designed virtual field trip learn about the path that the oil took and the impacts it had on the the communities wildlife and the world. Explore the spill like never before. Teachers guide included. This resource is free to download. Users must first create a login with ATEEC's website to access the file.
