Six hundred local high school students will converge on the
University at Buffalo's North Campus Wednesday, March 11 for the
annual Science Exploration Day, sharing center stage with the
exotic and endangered animals from around the world.
The students are among the most avid and accomplished science
students in Western New York. Keynote speaker Jeff Musial of Nickel
City Reptiles and Exotics will bring a dramatic selection of
beautiful and intriguing "animal ambassadors." Musial -- and his
animals -- give three presentations, 9:15 a.m., 10:10 a.m. and
12:20 p.m., all in Norton Hall's Woldman Theater.
The program, the 23rd edition presented at UB, will run from
9:30 a.m. to 1:05 p.m. Students will attend large and small group
presentations and lab tours throughout North Campus. "The students
and teachers attending always ask if they can come back next year,"
says Rodney L. Doran, professor emeritus in the Department of
Learning in UB's Graduate School of Education, who has been on the
organizing committee since the day began in the mid-80s.
