Family Science Investigation - Birds of a Feather
Birds are amazing animals. What makes a bird a bird, however, goes far beyond their flight and song. What is a feather made of, and how does it work? Why does one bird have a blue egg and another a speckled egg? Why do birds build so many different kinds of nests? These questions and many more will be answered in this class on basic bird biology.
Family Science Investigations programs offer families an opportunity to participate together in monthly science classes related to Museum research, including topics in ecology, paleontology, geology and biology. These classes are especially useful for homeschoolers looking for additional reinforcement to curriculum goals, or any family group that simply enjoys learning together!
Program Instructor: Bob Alderink and Colin Brammer, Coordinators for Natural World investigate Lab.
