Skype a Scientist

Skype a Scientist

A sea of hands waves in the air as cheerfully and kids attempt to keep from falling out of their seats. This may be the most gratifying welcome I have ever received for a talk on science, and I’m enjoying it from the comfort of my office chair!

Defenders’ scientists in the Center of Conservation Innovation have joined the growing force of scientists using technology to connect with classrooms around the country. The program is appropriately named Skype A Scientist and works like a matching service for science teachers who are looking for experts to speak to their students.
