Cortland Kindergarten Learns All About Frogs

Jordan Garcia leads a discussion on frogs with students from Cortland.

Grad students from our lab are participating in GRASSHOPR this year, a Graduate Student School Outreach Program. GRASSHOPR pairs Cornell graduate students with teachers in Tompkins County and Geneva to teach 3- to 5-session mini-courses on topics related to the graduate student’s field or interests. Students at Randall Elementary in Cortland learned all about frog diversity, tadpoles and metamorphosis, and natural history.

More importantly, students got to meet “real frog scientists”!
