NYC High School Kids Participate in Science Online 2010

tags: , , ,, , , , ,

This is a video collage by Stacy "Ms Bakeriffic" Baker's high school biology students from Staten Island Academy in Staten Island, NY. In this video, they take part in Science Online '10 in North Carolina. They also went to the lemur farm, which makes me SO JEALOUS! I love lemurs!

I am so pleased to see this video of SciO10 -- an event I wish I had attended. On one hand, I am pleased these kids got to experience this and on the other hand, I am jealous, wishing I had ever had such a wonderful opportunity at the same age (and wondering what my life might be today if I had). Regardless of where these kids go and what they do in the future, they have done a great job documenting the really fun, interesting and sadly overlooked aspects of this conference.

Miss Baker's biology students will be writing more about this in the next few days on the class blog, Extreme Biology Blog. One of her students, Jack, already has published his blog entry, and includes a video, too.

Lemurs are very cute. Brits of my generation had early exposure to them via Dotty the ring-tailed lemur on Animal Magic.
