|For the Birds
Colorado Bird Observatory
Computers have become indispensable in most work and educational settings,
and laptop computers are especially useful in field sciences such as ornithology.
For the Birds empowers young scientists to collect, store, analyze,
and present results of hypothesis-driven ornithological investigations.
Students develop original investigations, form basic hypotheses, design
an experiment, and test their theories about bird communities. After completing
fieldwork, students work in groups to write short research papers. For
the Birds culminates in an oral presentation of each groupís original
work to the rest of the class.
