A summer workshop for High School educators
Tuesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 17, 2013
From 8:30 am to 3:30 pm
Understanding the sources of variation within, and between, species is a fundamental concept of evolutionary biology, since variation is a necessary prerequisite for evolution by natural selection. Museum collections, with their large depth and breadth, can provide a unique resource for investigating this variation. In this two-day workshop for High School educators, learn about available datasets and image banks, and how to best make use of them in a classroom setting to teach evolutionary principles. In addition, this workshop will demonstrate that the biological "backyard" is available as a classroom, whereby students and teachers can make measurements and observations on easily obtained specimens.
