Zoo Conference

Students present their research at the Oregon Zoo

One of the highlights of Science in Action is the annual Science in Action Conference and ZooSnooze program at the Oregon Zoo.  A select group of students from each school is invited to present their project to their peers and to the conservation staff at the zoo.  The conference is a way to honor the students’ hard work and validate their research.

 

 

 

 

Students also listen to a talk about conservation biology by a zookeeper, have free time at the zoo, take a backstage tour of the zoo and then spend the night.
