Scientists in Action: Animal Anatomy

Program Description

Are you an adorer of animals? Delighted by dissection, or fascinated by feathers and fur? Then you have something in common with Andie Carrillo, Zoology Preparator at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Andie works behind the scenes of the museum, studying animal specimens to learn about their lives and environments from their physical characteristics, and preparing each specimen to be studied by other researchers for years to come.  Join Andie for an in-depth look at her fascinating career and a glimpse at how museums contribute to the study of our natural world. Your students’ questions will guide our exploration!
