How do you get kids excited about science?
Our approach is through a series of hands-on activities – largely involving photos and videos – that encourage kids to strengthen their observational skills while learning about wild animals. Emphasizing the intersection of science and art, these free activities provide instruction on how to keep nature journals, create maps, and test hypotheses about animal behavior. Please visit Shutterbug Science, our website dedicated to these K-12 science activities, for more information.
Intern with us!
Undergraduates at Stony Brook University can apply for a semester-long internship working on our outreach projects. Students earn credit for their participation through ANP 488 (Internship in Biological Anthropology). As an intern, you’ll learn about the natural history of Long Island and East Africa and gain experience in both field research techniques and educational outreach. Interns work closely with Dr. Markham and must commit to a minimum of 3 hours per week for one semester. Serious applicants should email Dr. Markham.
