A better way for children to learn, through nature...
WE DO state, national, and international field-based, image-based, Internet-based, and archival research aimed at improving and INTEGRATING geological and biological learning.
OUR GOAL IS to improve public understanding of these two sciences.
OUR SPECIAL AREA OF NATIONAL EXPERTISE lies in our research, integrated design, and improvement of geological and biological education programs at informal science education sites, specifically--FOSSIL PARKS, NATURE PARKS, ARBORETA, and BOTANIC GARDENS.
WE ARE: geologist/geoscience educator, Associate ProfessorRenee M. Clary, Ph.D., of Mississippi State University; and botanist/biology educator, Alumni Professor emeritus Jim Wandersee, Ph.D., of Louisiana State University.
