Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Class will start Saturday, September 6.
How can a single poison dart frog have enough venom to kill 10 grown men? Can a spiny soft shell turtle gallop like a horse? And what do munching bugs, toothbrush beetles, banana slugs, leaping fish and cannibalistic praying mantises have in common? This class will give students a chance to see what real science looks like as we combine hands-on experiments with outdoor activities to explore the fascinating world of animals. Participate in live animal encounters, seahorse forensics, specimen spotlights, identify bones, do a dissection, join us at the DNA work bench, and many other special animal projects.
