The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Museum of the North's Space Science Outreach webpage includes links to free downloadable activities, online resources, kits for loan, and more. As a NASA HEAT Partner, UAF has developed heliophysics-targeted resources which include the Sun Discovery Kit, Cultural Connections Kit, Sunspotter Kit, Energetic Aurora Kit, Magnets Kit, and entire page of hands-on activities related to the Sun, many with Native Alaskan perspectives on science.

Many resources focus on the aurora phenomena, or Northern Lights, which is how many Alaskans connect to the Sun in the dark winter months of the North.

UAF also holds virtual family events, accessible to audiences across the US.
