Meet Bill Stanley, Director of Collections, and follow along as they conduct a squirrel skinning and dissection. Students will learn about the anatomy of the Illinois Gray Squirrel and how museum collections further scientific research and discovery.
Using a 60-minute live broadcast, students can see, hear, and interact with researchers during a behind-the-scenes "visit" to one of the Museum’s state-of-the-art laboratories. In addition to the live broadcast, participating classrooms are supplied with grade-level appropriate supplemental educational activities and material to increase student learning before and after the broadcast.
