Outreach Programs > 2010 Graduate Student Trisha Vickrey reaches out to a fifth grade in Greeley, Colorado

trisha_mcThe fifth grade at Harold S. Winograd K8 School in Greeley, Colorado took learning about research science into their own hands – or should we say into the paws of a stuffed bear named Madame Curious. The students want to know what scientists are creating, researching, and learning. Since they can’t take field trips to science labs, they want Madame Curious to bring it to them through a wikispace.

Trisha Vickery hosted Madame Curious in the Venton Laboratory and contributed a fantastic blog about her research on the electrochemical detetion of neurotransmitters in fly brains.
