How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality

Description

Class Experience

Students will learn advanced entomology and animal behavior calibrated for ages 7-9. With an emphasis on the four groups of arthropods, we will focus on a different insect or arthropod each week, see sections for details. Dragonflies, beetles, butterflies, crabs, scorpions, barnacles, etc. We often address the topics of sex, specifically identifying sperm, eggs, methods of transferring these ingredients, including sexual selection, sperm competition, etc. All topics are discussed scientifically.
Jen earned her master of science in evolutionary biology and entomology before embarking on the master project of motherhood! These, combined, led her to start her business Tiny Science, where she teaches science to kids through insects! Jen's background teaching in special ed gives her an advanced set of skills to keep learners engaged and having fun while learning high-quality information.
No homework in this class, but learners will likely be practicing their new skills outside of class.
Learners should have something to draw on and something to draw with. Some learners may wish to use a bound journal to keep their work in.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessments come during class, as learners show Jen their page of work. This is a casual science class for building skills and confidence.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be looking closely at various arthropods, mostly insects and nothing gnarly.
