Timber Ridge Science Night – May 16th, 2017

The Timber Ridge Science Night is another great opportunity to get younger students and their families interested in fish and wildlife sciences. Middle school students had the chance to interact with college students from the Fish and Wildlife Department and will hopefully become interested in STEM related fields. The Fish and Wildlife Club participated in this event by displaying birds, mammals, and fishes from the OSU Collection. Students and their families are able to handle these specimens and they also get to learn more about fish and wildlife in their area. For the Fish and Wildlife Club, events like this are important for community outreach and we couldn’t make this possible without the help from Dr. Peter Konstantinidis.

Salmon Bowl – Feb. 17th, 2017

An annual College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences competition where high school students from all over Oregon and Idaho test their knowledge on all things marine science. Leading up to the event, students take a tour of the Fish and Wildlife Department collection and get the opportunity to interact with faculty and OSU students to learn and prep before their competition. We always have a great time interacting with these students and displaying specimens from the collection! Photo credit: Dr. Peter Konstantinidis

Periwinkle Family Science Night – Feb. 9th, 2017

The periwinkle Family Science Night is a fun outreach event that provides kids and their families the opportunity to interact with scientists and students in STEM fields. This is a great opportunity for kids to participate in hands on activities and The Fish and Wildlife Club leadership team participates by bringing specimens from the OSU collection. This event was really fun and it was great to have so many young kids interested in fish and wildlife! Thanks to Dr. Brian Sidlauskas and Dr. Peter Konstantinidis for allowing the Club to borrow from the teaching collection!!
