This Wednesday: Learn about the animals of Georgia’s barrier islands

September 21, 2020 Leave a comment

Take a virtual tour of Georgia’s barrier islands with Dr. Tony Martin, a paleontologist and ichnologist (that means he studies the tracks and traces that animals leave behind; yes, I had to look it up). He’ll show examples of animal markings and talk about what we can learn from them.

The event will be this Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 12:15 p.m., on Facebook live (on the Tellus Museum Facebook page) and YouTube live (on Tellus Museum’s YouTube channel). It’s part of Tellus Museum’s ongoing “Lunch + Learn” series.

You’re invited to submit questions about fossils or tracks on the event page ahead of time.

Emory Math Circle goes virtual this fall

September 8, 2020 Leave a comment

Emory Math Circle is a place for kids who think math is cool.

Students in grades 6 to 12 use games, puzzles and problems to look more deeply at how math works and discover fundamental advanced math concepts. Groups are taught by Ph.D. students from the Emory Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

This fall, Math Circle will meet on Saturdays — about twice a month — via Zoom.

Interested students have until September 16 to register. The program is free, although donations are appreciated.
