spectacular science speakers
Curious as to what each speaker or team of speakers prepared to teach to our classmates on the island? Here is my partner and I's science unit about the invasive species- the lionfish. To be completely honest learning about this species and preparing the lessons was mildly engaging at most... But seeing these creatures IN REAL LIFE and hearing from the interns at the field station how dangerous they are and being involved in the ecosystem they are invading- THAT INTRIGUED ME! I like to say major keys to teaching and learning are engagement and intrigue and this HANDS-ON science experiment HOOKED ME! I will be looking for ways to make science hands-on and intrigue based in my future classroom because this an awesome way to learn! Thanks Dr. Lisowski and International Field Studies!
