Wednesday, May 6
Featured Speaker: Sarah Ballard, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of Florida
Title: Directions to the Nearest Alien Earth-like Planet
Astronomers used to hedge at the question of whether the Sun and its system of planets are unusual in the cosmos. The study of exoplanets – planets around other stars – is relatively new. State-of-the-art instruments just brush up against the sensitivity to find planets similar to our very own planet Earth. In partnership with University of Florida.

Title: Animal Behavior: Bird Songs and Monkey Business
Explore the interesting aspects of animal behavior in monkeys and songbirds. First, meet Dr. Anderson and uncover her studies on behavioral ecology which reveal how and why animals behave as they do. Learn more about her research on the social behavior of songbirds in both the field and in the laboratory, and why birdsong can help us understand the social behavior and communication among animals, including our own. Then, discover new research from the Primatology Lab at FAU with Dr. Detwiler that focuses on African monkey species and their forest edge habitat. In partnership with Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Science.
