Close to 100 local second-graders got an up-close look at science and the natural world during recent field trips to the Richter Museum of Natural History.
Housed on the UW-Green Bay campus, the Richter Museum contains one of Wisconsin’s most significant collections of animal specimens for scientific research and education. Curator Tom Erdman shared some of the Museum’s coolest displays with the second-graders, who attend Danz Elementary School on Green Bay’s east side. The students were so impressed, remarked one teacher, that “they all want to be scientists now!”
