Flat Stanley visits UCMP

Flat Stanley
 

UCMP was delighted to be part of the Flat Stanley Project, an international literacy and communications activity for students and their families. Our Flat Stanley came to us from a first-grader named Cole who attends St. John the Evangelist School in New York. Cole is fascinated by fossils and dinosaurs and wants to grow up to be a paleontologist.

Flat Stanley spent about a week with us here at UCMP and had many interesting adventures visiting labs, touring the collections, and inspecting dinosaur fossils; he even had a close encounter with an octopus.

Before returning home to Cole in New York, Integrative Biology grad student Jennifer Skene took Flat Stanley with her on a visit to Vietnam and Cambodia. Read all about Flat Stanley's adventures at UCMP and in southeast Asia.
