Limited to 8 students/ week. This program is designed as part classroom, part practicum experience for middle school students, that counts as volunteer hours for school/ community requirements. With a focus on science & biomimicry, students will use the Museum as a living classroom for science research opportunities, authentic aquarium activities, bird identification and guest services. The participants will care for the Mothapalooza Kiosk critters and provide information for the visitors. Hiking, teaching and special Museum events make up each week. The ideal participant has a high interest in extending in his or her natural science knowledge and sharing their enthusiasm of the natural world with Museum visitors and younger KidSummer students.
