Bat Research Simulation
Desert Discovery Lab for Grades 6-12

Become a bat researcher and learn how scientists study bats in the field. Collect your own model bats, take measurements, identify species and compare your data to actual bat data from the Sonoran Desert. You will then get to identify trends in bat populations, and discover why it's important to learn more about these commonly misunderstood animals.
