10 Mar CRDG Part of Bishop Museum Collaboration
Erin Baumgartner is part of a team working on an ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations) grant at the Bishop Museum. Erin’s background which combines marine science, education, and museum research, made her ideal for this project. Her role is to develop modules and activities for students in a magnet school focused on environmental and cultural science. The modules will teach content and skills identified by museum researchers as critical to their work. She is currently working on the first two modules on taxonomy and scientific ethics.
