SSTP outreach presentation

Holmes and I showed the sloths to an enthusiastic bunch of high school students last week and talked about paleontology as part of the University of Iowa’s Secondary Student Training Program (SSTP).  The 19 students, juniors and seniors, some from as far away as Florida and Texas, were on campus for 6 weeks participating in an intense immersion in science research, with the cooperation of  labs all across campus.  Thanks to William Swain, Director SSTP and JSHS programs, Division of Continuing Education, for making the arrangements.  We’re hoping to see a few of them at our next dig. . . .
