Instructors: Geneva Mottet and Tyler Stokes
A bit about Geneva: I grew up in Southeast Alaska and the San Juan Islands in Washington state, where I gained a love for the natural world through hiking and fishing. I finished my MS in Physics in 2019 at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I currently live on a homestead near Fairbanks and enjoy sharing my interest in science and the natural world through public outreach and a YouTube channel.
A bit about Tyler: Though I work as a geologist, I have a little homestead in Fairbanks with Geneva where we fancy ourselves as chicken ranchers. We have been raising chickens for a few years now and look forward to sharing the quirks and joy these delightful critters bring to the table (aside from their eggs, of course)!
Dates: Session 2: April 19 - May 17
Zoom Times: Wednesdays, 4 PM - 5 PM
Description: Did you know that chickens are dinosaurs? Come learn everything about the humble chicken while watching a flock of chickens via live feed and observe eggs hatching in an incubator! In this class you will get a chance to do some other fun chicken inspired experiments like peep jousting, making a bouncy egg, and extracting protein from eggs. Learn the body parts of a chicken and how the parts of an egg turn into a chicken. The class is offered with weekly hands on experiments and a weekly zoom meeting, YouTube videos. Supplementary material will be offered through Google Classroom. It is going to be eggciting!
