For their last meeting of their Super STEM program, Meridian Club members got to take a trip over to Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, where the head animal TA and some volunteers were waiting with snakes, an Argentine Tegu, and a myriad of other interesting amphibians.

Club members not only learned about the environment and what it means to be an ecologist but were also given the opportunity to touch the snakes and a very friendly lizard named Mr. T. The trip ended with a peek at the Poison Dart frogs that the Thomas Family Health and Science Center houses.

Club members loved the hands-on interaction and were able to learn a lot about a potential future in wildlife biology! Thank you, NNU, Dr. Cossel, Austin Reich, and all the volunteers for facilitating this fantastic learning experience for our kids!
