McGlothlin Lab at Virginia Science Festival

The McGlothlin Lab had a booth at this year’s Virginia Science Festival entitled “Reptile Relatives,” which both showcased reptile diversity and showed how similar skeletal structure reveals that reptiles are our (distant) relatives. Lab members put in a lot of work designing and running the booth, and we had excellent turnout from the community.

Kids could take their own “X-ray” using this cardboard cutout and then compare their own bones to real X-rays from lizards.
