Friday February 17, 5:00 - 7:00pm, Cultural Confluence Panel

Moderated questions will be directed toward panelists who will share their unique experiences and perspectives working professionally with Native Deaf Youth and their resources both in rural Alaska and in Anchorage.  These experiences will provide a sense of what to expect when working with different cultures in the educational setting.

Saturday Feb 18 & Sunday Feb 19, 8:00 - 5:00 and 8:00 - 3:00  Reintroducing the Magic of Science Through Visualization and Creative Language Play 

Two Deaf scientists will provide a series of hands-on skill-building activities to integrate the tactile and creative aspects of science interpreting.  Interpreters will develop scientific thinking skills to understand new science content, will apply these skills for content conceptualization, choose appropriate signs and expand their ASL science vocabulary and deliver science concepts in an engaging, accurate and relatable manner. 

Must attend both Saturday and Sunday trainings to earn CEUs. No partial CEUs allowed.
