Exploring With Scientists: "How do we actually DO the science?"
From Misty Klotz
The W.K. Kellogg Biological Station is home to a group of talented graduate student scientists. Find out how some of them found an interest in science, how they got started doing research, and what kinds of plants and animals they study!
What does a scientist look like? And what do they do all day? Join scientist Holly Vander Stel to learn about how science is actually done, and the people who do it. Learn about what goes on behind the scenes to collect field and laboratory data used to answer important questions in ecology, agriculture, and more. Holly will describe “how do we actually DO the science”, and how scientists like Holly help researchers go from scientific questions to answers!
