Outreach: from elementary schools to diversity in graduate school

Folks in the lab are frequently engaged in outreach activities, ranging from visits to elementary schools to high school teacher training. In the past year, we have visited South Seneca and Belle Sherman elementary schools in Ithaca, and the Lincoln Street Elementary School in Waverly, NY.  We also participate in Expanding Your Horizons events, Cornell Entomology’s InsectapaloozaCornell Institute for Biology Teachers, the Diversity Recruitment Weekend, and other events. Below are pictures from the “Butterfly Curriculum Enrichment” in Waverly Elementary 1st & 3rd grades from May and October 2016.
