S4793: Primate Behavior in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 11, 2023)
There are hundreds of different species of primates, but most of us probably only know a few. In this class, we will talk about what all of those species have in common (what makes a "primate" a "primate"?) as well as some of the differences in their anatomy, enivronments, and behavior. We will also learn about some of the ways in which animal behavior is observered and studied by scientists. The goal is for this class to be very interactive.

S4794: The Human Skeleton in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 11, 2023)
Come learn about the 206 bones that make up the human skeleton! In addition to learning the bones themselves, we will also cover types of bone tissue, types of joints and how they move, and how the skeleton looks at different stages of development. The goal is for this class to be very interactive.
