I worked with Lisa Angeloni to organize a field trip for Poudre High School students in March 2013 and again in March 2014. A total of 70 students toured the lab, observed mating behavior, studied color patterns in male guppies, observed brain dissections, and loaded a gel while learning about the use of genetic tools to measure the effects of gene flow in wild populations. Fellow graduate students Eva Fischer and Sarah Fitzpatrick were a big part of this project. *2013 Pictures*  *2014 Pictures*

We just hosted another lovely group of Poudre High School Students form Cristi Carpenter’s class this February 2015. This year, Dr. Emily Kane, Sarah Westrick, and Francis Commercon helped introduce some of the cool evolutionary research we are doing with guppies at CSU.
