W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary
Join us online with the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary and Dr. Nameer Baker to explore microbial ecology. Learn about microscopic bacteria and fungi that live all around us and are responsible for recycling the nutrients that all living things depend on – ourselves included! Nameer will describe how he asks the question, “how do microbes help plants grow?” and how scientists like himself study microbes in plants, soil, and even air.
Exploring with Scientists is a FREE program, but registration is required.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
Exploring with Scientists is an online series that connects upper elementary and middle school students with graduate students conducting ecological research at the Kellogg Biological Station. Each of the six programs will focus on a certain type of animal or insect and touch on how scientists collect data in the field. Participants will be able to submit questions related to natural history, research and science careers.
