Outreach

From working with high school students and teachers to Science Nights, we enjoy talking about our science. We're always looking for new opportunities, so let us know if you have ideas. Below are notes from a few activities we've completed in the past.

Billion Oyster Project - New York Harbor School Collaboration

We currently work with aquaculture students at the New York Harbor School. Students engage in a year-long project exploring non-consumptive effects of predators on oysters.

River Project

Our lab collaborates with the River Project on multiple projects.

Dr. Stephen Gosnell at SAS Science Night

On Thursday, May 2, 2013 new post-doctoral associate, Dr. Stephen Gosnell, participated in the Tallahassee School of Arts and Sciences' Science Night. Presenters came and set up tables and presentations for students and their parents interested in variable science topics. The audience ranged from kindergarten students to middle-school students. Despite the rain, there was a great turnout and everyone had a fantastic time. Amy Akridge, a science resource teacher, noticed a group at the end of the night exclaiming, "We love Science Night!" We are thrilled that Dr. Gosnell could be a part of inspiring such enthusiasm in young students. (From FSUCML website)

Life Between the Tides Activities

Bret Klopfenstein, a high school teacher from California, worked with the lab in 2008 to produce a series of videos and activities related to our work on non-consumptive effects.
