Capstone Project Title
Elizabeth B. Will
This capstone project explored the research question, what are the most effective methods for using live animals for instruction in environmental education? The author pinpointed recommendations for effective environmental education and live animal education through the literature review, which guided the construction of interpretive-style bird of prey programs for use at a residential environmental learning center. Digital slides and accompanying scripts were designed for three new programs, each one-hour in length: RaptorPHYSICS, RaptorCARE, and RaptorFORCE. The presence of a live bird of prey is intended to create an emotional connection and program content aims to empower audience members to display behavioral change as a result of the learning experience.
