This spring, members of our lab again teamed up with other BEACON friends to share
- clip birds: learning about how form relates to function by foraging for different-sized seeds with different-sized beaks (i.e. different clothespins)
- hominid skulls: how do the different skull morphologies relate to function and how can we see differences between organisms?
- geckos: Travis brought live Crested and Leopard geckos to compare and contrast their adaptations… how can we tell that the geckos came from different environments?
- giant evolutionary timeline: learning about the different animals that lived across evolutionary time.
Thanks to all the families that came to visit us at Elementary Science Nights and at the MSU Science Fest! Pictured representing our lab are Alex, Austin, Josh, Emily and Mike. Matthew is behind the camera.
