The Primate Behavior and Ecology program volunteers with CWU GEAR UP events in an effort to encourage students and families in the surrounding counties of Washington to consider higher education. PBE students and faculty work hand-in-hand to develop fun and interactive stations that allow visiting students and families to discover the academic topics of anthropology and primate behavior.
CWU-COTS/ Expanding Your Horizons
Primate Behavior and Ecology program members also volunteer their time with Expanding Your Horizons events, which encourage young women to explore careers in science, technology, engineering and technology. Middle-school girls (5th-9th grades) are invited to learn about exciting career opportunities, while learning about significant women role models within STEM. PBE students and faculty work together to create memorable learning experiences in anthropology and primate behavior.
Dr. Jessica Mayhew shared some of her experiences in primate field research and what it is like to teach science at the university-level during a Skype call to an elementary school first-grade class in Plymouth, New Hampshire.
Graduate students (led by Lisa Tweed) instruct various primatological lessons to visiting classrooms and travel to the local Cle Elum-Roslyn elementary school to teach lessons about humane treatment of animals and others (May 2018).
