Looking for ways to inspire your students with stories of innovative women in science? Join an educator-focused webinar on new ways to teach the predator/prey dynamic in the classroom featuring Dr. Rachel Page. 

In this webinar for 4th–8th grade educators, you'll speak with Smithsonian behavioral ecologist Dr. Rachel Page about her career studying the mechanisms that enable predators to find their prey and those that help their prey avoid them. You'll also get a hands-on walkthrough of a suite of teaching and learning materials featuring Dr. Page's work (; an online two-player game that simulates the predator/prey interactions between the fringe-lipped bat and túngara frog, a connected data entry activity, classroom materials on echolocation, and much more. This is the second in a series of three “Smithsonian Teacher Training: How to Be a Scientist” webinars featuring the research and contributions of Smithsonian women scientists.
