This week in STEM Club at Richard E. Miller we learned about desert birds.  Jr. Scientists dissected owl pellets, which contained the skeletons of moles, rodents and birds.  We enjoyed identifying the various bones, and learning about their food chain.

We made clay owls, and discussed the form and function of these amazing animals.  Later, we looked at the beaks of different birds, and experimented by using different tools as our “beaks” to collect candy.
