The University of Nebraska State Museum will host Sunday with a Junior Scientist from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. April 2 at Morrill Hall, 645 N. 14th St.
Past research has shown that enthusiasm for science is the same for girls and boys until a drop among females between fourth and eighth grades. Sociologists at Nebraska took a closer look at why this happens and found that gender norms, stereotypes and, interestingly, friendships may be playing a large role.
"Galapagos," a new traveling exhibition at Morrill Hall, will allow museum patrons to explores the origins, animal and plant inhabitants, and current research on the Galapagos Islands. The exhibition is open March 3 through Aug. 6.
