Sonoran Desert Discovery

In Sonoran Desert Discovery, enrolled UA students teach biological, ecological, and ecosystem principles to school groups and the public (kindergarten to retiree) at Biosphere 2, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and other Tucson venues. Students build inquiry-based workshops on campus and in small groups to lead for the public. In the process, students develop public-speaking skills and their own effective teaching style while learning about Sonoran Desert ecology and natural history. Students also visit classrooms to give workshops, and work with visiting school groups at Flandrau Science Center on the UA campus. The course meets once per week, plus weekend and weekday workshops several times per semester.
