Activities Calendar

Sunday with a Scientist

Hands-on science for everyone

Meet a different scientist each month to learn about topics and careers in science. Scientists will share what they study in a fun, informal way through hands-on activities, demonstrations, and conversation.

Extinct Bioengineers

with Kate Lyons Paleoecology Lab

Sunday, May 19th 12:00pm-3:00pm
Included with admission; FREE for members

Ecosystem engineers are plants and animals that dramatically change the environment around them. The changes they make often provide habitats for other species. Today, there are many important ecosystem engineers, like beavers. But what type of ecosystem engineers lived in the past? Join UNL paleontologists at Sunday with a Scientist on May 19th to engage in a number of hands on activities, exploring extinct ecosystem engineers and their effects on the environment.
