Join Kyle Jaynes to learn about the field of herpetology! Grow your knowledge of amphibians and reptiles and find out what’s being done to increase their populations, and how some species avoid extinction.
Kyle will talk about how he got started doing science and how you can explore areas of science that you find interesting. He’ll take you into the field in Ecuador and into his lab to show how he collects and analyzes data. And, of course, he’ll talk all about frogs!
After your program, download section quizzes to review concepts with students.
