F.E.M.M.E.S Day Camp at UNC

Posted on Nov 1, 2016

The women of the Kingsolver and Willett labs including graduate students Kate Augustine, Elizabeth Moore, and Meggan Alston and undegraduates Charlotte Hopson and Anna Pearson represented women in science at UNC’s Females Excelling More in Mathematics Engineering and Science (FEMMES) Day Camp on October 29th, 2016 for 4th-6th grade girls. They brought the caterpillar experiment and included an art activity creating “caterpillar tracks” using finger paint on the prolegs of some wandering Manduca sexta. Everyone had a great time learning about thermal biology and making art.
