Science How Video Webinar Archives
In March 2020, due to the museum closing temporarily to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, we moved our popular webcast series to Zoom video webinars to connect your learners to natural history science and careers more often. These recordings are different from our webcasts, in large part because the host and scientists all participated from home. We will add more recordings regularly.
