Robotic Geese: Experiential Learning and Exploration, is a K-12 curricula resource inspired by the work of artist Dr. Natalie Jeremijenko. Jeremijenko’s project, Ooz, Inc., Zoo Backwards, explores issues of human/animal interaction and includes a component that employs interactive goosing robots as a means for persons to interact, communicate and observe live geese in their natural habitats. This guide is a collection of activities and how-to instructions on how to use this project as inspiration for innovative ways of using environmental education in K-12 classrooms around the country. Looking past the computer, past the chalkboard and instead toward the windows, toward the doors and providing unique opportunities for students to engage in applied, hands-on learning through real-world science, math and language arts. Robotic Geese is meant to serve as a platform for getting you and your students excited about the natural world, science and everything in between. Come and explore with us in the water, on the land and in the sky.
