This summer, 26 students from across Oklahoma were selected to participate in Paleo Expedition and Oklahoma Science Adventure. ExplorOlogy® In Motion and the Sam Noble Museum bring the field science they experienced back to their schools with unique educational outreach programs. These programs are offered at no cost to participants or their schools. Paleo Expedition/Oklahoma Science Adventure: ExplorOlogy® In Motion Brochure 2016-17
Classroom labs are unique science experiences for up to 30 students per class. An ExplorOlogy® educator will lead a 50 minute hands-on, inquiry-based program where the students become the scientists. Classroom programs feature actual specimens for students to handle during their investigations.
- Classify It! (Grades 6-12) - Why is classification important? Looking for physical similarities between animals can help us figure out how they survive in their ecosystem. In this lab, students will create their own animal classification system and discover how much an animal's appearance can really tell us.
- Paleontology Lab (Grades 9-12) - How can fossils help us understand the past? Paleontologists use fossils as important evidence in reconstructing ancient ecosystems and animal characteristics. Working in teams, students will excavate fossils and use comparative anatomy to discover what clues fossils hold to the Earth's past.
