Hero and Project Description: 

Humbert’s innovative teaching idea, “Dinosaurs Are Still Cool,” focuses on creating a hands-on research project that will introduce students to the underutilized science of paleontology. Humbert hopes that through combining authentic field learning with lab experience students will engage in increased collaboration with their peers and partake in real-world employment opportunities. After one dinosaur has been completely recovered, students will complete research and write their findings in a format suitable for publishing in the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology journal. With the support of the Voya grant, Humbert aspires to teach her students the importance of professional publication, peer-review, and field work in pursuing a future career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
