Earth Day 2022
Celebrating Women in Science Tracking Species
This Earth Day, join the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center for a three-part virtual program series all about tracking animals! This series, called "Women on the Move: Technology and Animal Tracking," highlights the stories of women in science who save species by using technology to track animals across sea, sky and land.
Designed for grades 3-8 but open to all. All programs include ASL interpretation and live captioning in English and Spanish.
This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.
Programs are free but require registration. All three programs are hosted live via Zoom webinar and are 45 minutes long with an additional 15 minutes for student Q&A. Participants are not visible to the speaker and moderators but are encouraged to engage by answering polls, reacting with emojis and submitting questions in writing through a Q&A.
