Las Aciones Pesan Más Que Las Palabras (Actions Speak Louder Than Words)
As it has become part of the tradition of the Chipojo Lab, we had the honor of hosting another group of 7th and 8th graders . The main purpose of their visit was to interact with a Latino scientist, with the hope that they would realize that science is fun, can take place outside the laboratory setting, and is not limited to a small sub-section of the population. These are the types of opportunities that keep me going and that are central to my academic mission. The students were great, and we had a lot of fun using lizards as an example to tackle topics such as climate change, rapid evolution, and cognition.
