Activity and Mobility: What Do Our Bones Tell Us?

A unique teacher professional development experience for middle and high school teachers.

July 11th - 15th, 2019

Teachers participate and collaborate with leading researchers in the area of primate and human evolutionary morphology, CSATS science educators, and educators from across Pennsylvania. You will spend a week at Penn State learning about ongoing primate evolutionary morphology research and advanced computational techniques like high-resolution computed tomogoraphy imaging (microCT), 3D morphometrics, modeling, and visualization to understand the relationships between bone structure and activity patterns in living and extinct humans and nonhuman primates. With support from the Mobility team, you will develop a research project to implement with your students in the 2019 –2020 academic year. The classroom research project will incorporate workshop activities and data collected by Dr. Tim Ryan.
