Broader impacts and outreach

Scientific outreach:

We have worked with the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, Calgary Science Network, and WitmerLab at Ohio University, to bring zoology and paleontology to students of all ages and backgrounds.

Colleague Becca Werren and I engage the students with Argentinosaurus, T. rex, and Acrocanthosaurs, and even walk and measure the length of a Supersaurus
