Hill College Biology II Majors Team Up With Turner Museum

09.11.15

Hill College Biology 2 majors in Dr. Lori Valentine Rose’s class have partnered with the Turner Museum of Natural History in Cleburne to help educate the museum’s Facebook page viewers about past and present species while also promoting the museum. “These students have full administrator rights and empowers them with a marketable skill,” Rose said. “The Facebook posts also count as their test grade.” Rose said the project encompasses a full “test” unit and five labs as students take field trips to find current examples and evidence of fossils found in the museum. “It is a fabulous partnership,” she added, “as it provides unique and real-world education for Hill College students while helping the success of a local museum.”
