Immersive Experiences for School Groups Q?rius oers 60-minute pre-registered classes led by experienced Museum Educators for up to 35 students at a time. Using objects, data, scientic equipment, and digital media, students complete a series of activities based on Smithsonian research. In the process, they investigate core ideas in nature and culture related to classroom curriculum. They gain critical skills in the practices of science by observing, documenting results, and justifying their conclusions with evidence. BIRD STRIKE WHODUNIT: GRADES 6-12 During takeo from Reagan National Airport, a plane collided with a ock of birds and was forced to make an emergency landing. During this sta-led program, students will follow in the footsteps of Smithsonian scientists to determine the species of bird that brought down the airplane by examining bird fragments and feathers collected from the aected aircraft, and simulating processing DNA. Students will learn how bird strike data is used by airport managers to alter aireld habitats, and debate proposed methods of discouraging bird congregation around airports. GRADES 6-12 How do geologists know what lies beneath the earth’s surface? During this sta-led program, students will collaborate and compete with their classmates to identify the most ecient way to nd iron ore by learning to read the stories of rocks. Students will develop skills used by Smithsonian scientists to identify geologic features in rocks, interpret geologic maps, piece together drill cores, and model how tectonic forces deform rocks. After honing their geologic skills, they will compete in groups to see who can most accurately nd the extent of the natural resource. FORENSIC MYSTERIES - A ”GRIZZLY” DISCOVERY: GRADES 6-12 A group of hikers stumbled across what looks like human remains. Have they found a crime scene or could there be another explanation? During this sta-led program, students will examine real human bones, objects and artifacts using the forensic tools and techniques of Smithsonian scientists to determine age, sex, time since death, and maybe even cause FORENSIC MYSTERIES - MYSTERY AT YORKTOWN CREEK: GRADES 6-12 Erosion along a creek bed produces a startling discovery – a human skeleton! Before the clues are washed away forever, students will get the chance to examine the evidence collected by the archaeologist during this sta-led program. Using the forensic tools and techniques of Smithsonian scientists, they will study the human bones and artifacts found with the skeleton to determine who this person was, when they lived, and what their life might have been like. Uncover the mystery of a person whose burial could turn out to be over 200 years old! Q?RIUS COLLECTIONS CHALLENGE: GRADES 6-12 The Q?rius Collection Zone includes 6,000 natural history objects, all accessible for student exploration in this sta-led program. Working in teams, students will receive a Collections Challenge Card, which assigns them to work in one of the Museum’s departments: Anthropology, Botany, Entomology, Invertebrate Zoology, Paleobiology, Mineral Sciences, or Vertebrate Zoology. Like scientists and collections managers at the Museum, students will follow protocols for handling valuable and sometimes delicate objects, and agree upon a strategy to curate and interpret a collection of their own while engaging in the scientic method. REEFS UNLEASHED: GRADES 6-12 During this sta-led program, students explore how Smithsonian scientists measure the biodiversity of coral reefs using nondestructive methods. They will model the same scientic processes used by our scientists by observing and analyzing images of plates with the actual organisms that live in the Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) to better understand human impact on coral reefs. Based upon their observations students will develop, test, and rene explanations and potential recommendations for protecting and preserving coral reefs. Join us on select dates to participate in this redesigned pilot program! IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES FOR SCHOOL GROUPS www.qrius.si.edu

In School: Curiosity Continues The Q?rius website at www.qrius.si.edu oers a variety of dierent follow-up opportunities for your students. Students can conduct an investigation with an online activity, jump into science stories, create a digital eld book, or explore science in action. Smithsonian Science How delivers real-world science into classrooms through free, SMITHSONIAN interactive, live webcasts and supporting classroom resources. The 30-minute SCIENCE HOW WEBCASTS programs feature the research and personalities of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, providing your students with positive STEM role models, information about science careers and pathways, and connections to current research. Every webcast includes a package of standards-aligned teaching resources that includes lessons, activities, and other resources that highlight science content and practice. SMITHSONIAN Visit our video library to watch the collection of dozens of Smithsonian Science SCIENCE HOW How videos, featuring experts and topics in the subject areas of earth science, life VIDEO LIBRARY science, paleontology, and social studies. Each video has a complementary package of standards aligned teaching resources that include lessons, activities, and other resources that highlight science content and practice. SMITHSONIAN Participate in live, text-based chats with scientists that have previously been SCIENCE HOW featured on a Smithsonian Science How live webcast. Students have the opportunity LIVE CHATS to have a direct conversation with scientists about their career pathways and work at the Museum. Supplement the live chat by watching the Smithsonian Science How video archive of the featured scientist and using the available teaching resources before and after the live chat. TEACHING RESOURCES Resources include webcasts and podcasts, lessons, online activities, posters, science literacy resources, websites, videos, and Smithsonian science career proles. Use the resources to create a lesson plan, develop a research project, generate an interactive class experience, or otherwise engage pre-teen and teen learners in a science topic. Relevant national science standards are provided. JUMP INTO Delve into the same topics being explored by Smithsonian scientists, such as SCIENCE STORIES volcanoes, genomics, extinction, and human evolution. Read about the cutting-edge work and adventures of Smithsonian scientists, watch videos of them in action, hear them talk about what inspires their curiosity, and manipulate digital objects similar to the ones they use. CREATE A DIGITAL Just like a scientist records their observations, students ages 13 and over may record the results from their experiences with Q?rius activities and collections online. Create an account to save objects, stories, images, and notes to a Digital Field Book. WATCH SCIENCE UNFOLD Watch videos of real-life scientists explaining their work, how they got started in their careers, and how they balance and integrate their work, passions, and everyday lives.
