Posted in Outreach, tumblelog

This has been reposted from our lab tumblelog A few weeks ago I went to Wilkes Elementary to give a presentation and show the students some marine invertebrates. I used some of the more charismatic examples from FISH310 and the kids were extremely knowledgable and full of questions. I easily had more student interaction in that one hour than 10 weeks in my college course!  Below is a post from Mrs. Spickard’s blog on my visit. Marine Science with Mr. Roberts Posted by Laurie Spickard at 5/21/2013 Mr. Roberts came to share his marine science expertise with us!  We thank you for taking...
