Wednesdays at 3:00 PM ET, September 30 - October 28
Why is spring so loud? What are all those birds, frogs, and bugs saying? Explore the science of sound, and how animals use behavior and coloration to communicate. You'll use your eyes and ears to creatively investigate your corner of the world, make a sound map, learn what sound looks like and why some animals are brightly colored, and discover the important role of sound in marine environments. Along the way, we'll meet live birds like a kookaburra and an Andean Condor. Presented in partnership with the World Bird Sanctuary.
Materials needed: Access to the outdoors, internet access, paper, pencils, and colored pencils or crayons. An additional material list may be shared a week prior to camp.
