W.K. Kellogg Biological Station
During the 2021 KBS K-12 Partnership Field Day we will visit an aquatic and a terrestrial field lab at Kellogg Biological Station! Scientists, Elizeth Cinto Mejia and Kyle Jaynes, will lead sessions that highlight how their research uses organisms (such as plants and fish) to study climate change, evolution and species conservation.
The Field Day allows a small group (30) of educators to look more deeply at research design and data collection methods alongside MSU scientists while making connections to existing curriculum and the Next Generation Science Standards..
This program will be hosted IN PERSON and follow current MSU Covid Safety policies. For more information on MSU’s policies, visit https://msu.edu/together-we-will/campus-visitors/
