Elementary and middle-school students can investigate the field of biology and learn about cool science happening at Kellogg Biological Station through an online, six-part series, Exploring with Scientists.

Each of the programs will focus on a certain type of ecological study or part of doing research. Participants will be able to submit questions to the presenters.

 The series is free, and sessions take place from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, March 1, 8, 15 and 22, and April 5 and 12. Registration is required to access the meeting details. The presenters are Michigan State University staff and graduate students involved in research at KBS.
