WEEK ONE - ORIENTATION TO BIODIVERSITY
Off we go to answer questions about diversity!!! We examined a microbial community. You can call the lab "Itty Bitty City" ! It can be a field trip in the classroom. We looked at protozoans and other organisms collected from various ponds and lakes. Email me to send you more information. Our instructors are Andrew Goldenkranz , Michael Lemke, Tom Gorrell, and Michael Levandowsky, all fun and exciting individuals with which to work. They have a wealth of information based on various backgrounds in education, college biology, microbiology, and limnology.
Click on Journal Photos to see us at work!!! Just click on "Back" to return to this page.
We also went on a scavenger hunt to locate and identify organisms in an area. A fun way to get kids out of the classroom. Email me for more information.
Look at the fun we had the next day!!! Click here to see.
A fantastic trip to New York to the American Museum of Natural History!!! Dr. Kefyn Catley, a chief scientist in entomology, was our host. Dr. Joel Cracraft, a curator and the person principally responsible for the Central African Republic rainforest diorama in the Hall of Biodiversity also spoke to us. The IMAX was nice.
