We are very excited to be collaborating with HawkWatch International on a project that allows students to work with data and scientists, both in the field and in a statistics elective class that is offered at SLCSE. The course is available to our 9th, 10th and 11th grade students.
Students work with staff from HawkWatch International to learn how data on raptors is collected and analyzed. Students make the tough hike to the research site in the Goshutes to participate in data collection. These trips take place in late September and early October, which are the optimum times for data collection. The trips to the Goshutes are amazing.
A wide variety of data will be collected on these trips. Along with existing HawkWatch data students are exploring the world of raptors through a statistics class taught by Ms. Crim. The application of statistical methods to "real" data provides students with and interesting and important educational experience.
