My science teacher colleague and I got to take 9 of our students for a Women in Science conference on Tuesday on the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus, awesome experience! Over 400 middle and high school girls getting to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering and math for future careers. http://sites.google.com/site/rapidcitywomeninscience/
The girls loved the Paleo lab, we could probably have stayed for hours. Not just the Museum, but the behind the scenes tour of how the fossils are prepared, studied and preserved, talking to working paleontologists about their jobs and handling fossils millions of years old. Kids loved it!
