Sikuliaq special exhibit nearly complete

FAIRBANKS- The UA museum of the North will unveil a new special exhibit this weekend called “Arctic Odyssey” and it’s about the sikuliaq [see-koo-lee-uk] research vessel. The public can explore different models of the ship and its capabilities. Sikuliaq is an Inupiaq word that means “young sea ice” and the boat will allow scientists to journey to the ice-choked waters of Alaska and polar regions. The special exhibit opens Saturday, and organizers say there are many interactive displays that are fun and educational.
