As a scientist, one of my favorite things to do is share my love of science with other people, including kids and adults! I've listed below some of my favorite and most recent activities.
Human Anatomy Lab Outreach Sessions
As part of the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at Mizzou, I have helped to develop and lead the University of Missouri Human Anatomy Laboratory Outreach Sessions program. In this program, we welcome high school students interested in pursuing careers in health sciences into the anatomy lab for brief “tours” of human anatomy on a human cadaver.
Dinosaurs and Cavemen Science Expo
Dinos and Cavemen is a pop-up natural history museum that allows children and their families to explore human anatomy, dinosaur paleontology, and human origins through exhibits and activities designed to foster a life-long love of learning and science. For more information on Dinos and Cavemen, follow MU Integrative Anatomy @MizzouIntegrativeAnatomy on Facebook.
