Outreach at Hope High School, Fall 2015 and Spring 2016

May 31, 2016

General Topics in Biology.

Throughout the fall 2015 and spring 2016, IGERT trainee Bianca Brown engaged in outreach at the local Hope High School in Providence.

Bianca introduced the students to her undergraduate experience as well as IGERT and her graduate school projects. She demonstrated a frog dissection and and used the opportunity to not only discuss the anatomy of the frog, but to introduce the students to the array of career paths they could take if they were interested in organismal biology. Other topics of interest were space and dinosaurs, especially the extinct species megalodon.
