Join us for our next outreach event!
As our program or our lab conducts outreach events I will post stills on this page. Below these I will start posting any educational worksheets or supplements that are free to use by all. Follow all of our outreach events on the calendar as well. This calendar includes events and bird-related trips that are not strictly outreach as well. These sometimes include other University of Missouri events and Audubon Society events.
Follow the link below to play games and visit educational websites. These are not restricted to birds or dinosaurs, they are universal across not only science, but education.
Citizen Science: Always
Citizen science is conducted every day by people all over the world. When people without formal/traditional training in science participate in collecting and
analyzing data, it makes the study of nature more personal, and people tend to take more stock in the results when they are personal. Because no rigorous training is required people sometimes
balk at the validity of citizen organized science, but the data generated by non-scientists is carefully examined. If you or someone you know is interested in participating in scientific data
collection, getting to know people in a field you are interested in, and willing to volunteer your time, please check out my area on citizen-based science.
Internet Based Science Lessons and Outreach: Always Available
I have always been available for distance outreach using Skype or Facebook and Twitter. This year we have attempted, as a department to make this available, but it has taken more time than we would have liked because of the logistics of a larger scale program. Anyone interested in online science outreach should contact me here.
