Science Unwrapped Wraps up for the Semester

Science Unwrapped April 7 at 7pm!

Engineers Without Borders Utah State University Chapter (EWB-USU) spends a lot of time focusing on helping other countries through education and service. But they also want to help their local community. Many members of EWB-USU, like our Outreach Coordinator Amanda Stoudt, volunteer at Science Unwrapped, an event the College of Science puts on once a month.

Science Unwrapped is held once a month and features a keynote speaker followed by games and activities fit for all ages. Everyone, no matter the age or scientific background, is encouraged to attend the events. The free events are held in the Eccles Science Learning Center Emert Auditorium, room 130 and generally start at 7 p.m.

Friday, April 7th at 7 p.m., will be the last Science Unwrapped event of the current semester. Wildlife ecologist Dan MacNulty will be presenting "Timid Predators, Scary Prey: Why Wolves are Wimpier than you Think." Partnering with research scientist L. David Mech and Yellowstone National Park Wolf Project Leader Douglas Smith, MacNulty wrote the book "Wolves on the Hunt: The Behavior of Wolves Hunting Wild Prey" in order to understand these feared creatures. His presentation will dispel some preconceived notions about wolves.

We hope to see everyone there! For more ways to get involved please visit EWB-USU's website at http://ewb.usu.edu
