I’m really excited about this series as I had the opportunity to travel to Alaska in February to work with the terrific teachers in the Anchorage School District.

Yes, we did actually see a moose!

[It probably wasn’t advisable to get this close to the moose, but when will I ever get a picture like this again?]

What is “The Alaska Experiment”?

The experiment begins when nine ordinary people are abandoned off in Central Alaska with only a few essential supplies and a goal to make it back to civilization. Alaska wastes no time testing their wilderness experience and severe hunger sets in.

There are some terrific interactive features posted on the series website.

So, if you are looking for a terrific series with great classroom extensions, check out “The Alaska Experiment” premiering on April 14th at 10:00 PM ET on the Discovery Channel.
