We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to skype with Dr. Nina Jablonski, the world’s expert on skin color and it’s evolution and author of our anchor text – Skin: A Natural History. It is not every day eighth graders get to speak with a famous author and scientist but on this day we were able to hear stories, inspirational words and the answers to our questions from Dr. Jablonski. Everyone walked away excited about what they learned and motivated to finish their expedition final products. We were especially surprised to see our event featured on the Rochester City School District Homepage the next day.
Update: Dr. Jablonski Tweeted about our skype! Thank you Dr. Jablonski.
K-8 students at World of Inquiry School in Rochester NY discuss important topics like evolution and race. Hats off! twitter.com/NinaJablonski1…
