Akron Zoo Skype Event

Akron Zoo Skype Event
Posted on 01/11/2019
Skype Call from the Akron ZooOn January 9th, 5th-grade NIHF-STEM Learners received a Skype call from the Akron Zoo asking for their help in providing ideas for several animal habitats. The zoo also asked the learners to design social media posts scripts to inform and educate patrons about animal enrichment. Learners are currently doing research in partnership with the Akron Public Library to learn about animal characteristics, life cycle, behavior, habitat, and position in the food chain. Learners will be designing prototypes of their enrichment creations that they will present to the Akron Zoo in a Flipgrid online presentation. Selected prototype inventions will be made by learner teams with the help of the Akron Zoo. These learners will be able to visit the Akron Zoo to see the animals interact with the enrichment for the first time. Students at the school will be watching the event during a live stream. We are so excited about this unique partnership and opportunity for our eager student inventors! Stay tuned for more news about this engaging event.
