Science outreach opportunities for High School and Grammar Schools
Have an entomologist visit your school!
The opportunity exist to have Ph.D. and M.S. graduate students in insect ecology visit student as part of established curriculum or during after school programs. Graduate students volunteer their time in order to provide the students with a greater scope of science and give them the opportunity to meet a scientist first hand.
In the past year we’ve given several 1 to 2 hour classes to after school programs in the Chicago metropolitan area. We engage the students in the understanding of biology and in particular entomology (the study of insects).
Outreach opportunities include but are not limited to:
· Public talks, lectures, discussions.
· Topics of interest:
· Props and material
If interested in having a Entomologist visit and talk to your
school please contact J. Cristian Martinez at Jmarti51(at)uic.edu for more information.
