This is a FREE workshop hosted by Wolf Ridge made possible by a collaboration with The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, UMN Extension, and Eagle Bluff ELC.
The grant from LCCMR allows for the development of the “Outdoor Investigator” module of “Raptor Lab” and the FREE teacher trainings being held around the state of Minnesota.
Raptor Lab is an interactive online learning environment that models the process of scientific investigation in real-world settings through the active role-play of different scientific careers involved in veterinary care and wildlife rehabilitation. Then provides a platform for students to team up, investigate outside, and share their own inquiry-based investigations online. Raptor Lab is appropriate for students from fifth grade through high school.
Outdoor Investigator allows for flexibility throughout grade levels and subjects. Click on this link to view possible MN Standards hit by using this program.
