Wild IQ Online

2nd EDITION

This 10-day program will connect you with top research students studying wildlife and forests.
Bats, birds, frogs, elephants, lizards, turtles, snakes, and more. Each day, you get to dive deep into one topic and learn things that Google may not be able to answer.
Engaging presentations, do-it-yourself (DIY) projects and discussions will be part of the one hour program.
After this program, you will be able to connect classroom theories to real-world conservation issues.
Parents, this is your best chance to find out how research could be a promising career option for your child.
