Working on the public floor

sea_lion_bowl_visit-0021

My favorite part about working at the Academy is getting to go on the public floor at the demonstration stations. We have several stations that teach the public about different topics like; limb homology, penguins, extreme mammals, and discovery tide pool. It’s great to interact with people and talk about those different things. Also, it’s wonderful when I tell kids about cool facts and their faces light up with astonishment. They then start to talk about what they’ve learned in school and places they’ve gone to. I feel like I’ve accomplished something when I teach someone new information that they didn’t know before, plus I learn something new every time I come to work and I enjoy that. It’s rewarding to get to meet different people who come and visit the Academy. The conversation and topics vary on the age group that come and see the station when we interact with people of all ages.
