BIO 4950: Whale Skeleton Articulation (2020-2021)

View all BIO classes

In this course, students will articulate a 29-foot gray whale skeleton to hang in Eaton Hall's Discovery Room. As they build, students will engage in interdisciplinary inquiry into the lives of whales, with guest speakers from across campus presenting on whales from their various disciplinary perspectives (psychology, nutrition, theology, biology, English, art, and others). The building of this whale and the interdisciplinary discussions accompanying it revolve around questions of conservation, students coming to know whales so that we may save them. May be repeated for credit up to 6 credits.
