Title: Operation RubyThroat: The Hummingbird Project
Title abbreviated: Operation RubyThroat
Creator: Hilton Jr., Bill
Abstract: Operation RubyThroat: The Hummingbird Project is an international cross-disciplinary education and research initiative of Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History in York, South Carolina USA. The project is designed primarily for K-12 teachers and their students from public and private schools in the countries of Central America and North America: the United States, Canada, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. Participation may include home-schooled students as well as folks from informal education venues (e.g., nature centers, camps, scout troops, etc.). Individual students and adults also can be involved (including parents, mentors, and college students). Even though students are the primary target audience, Operation RubyThroat is open to ANYONE interested in hummingbirds! This unique project uses the Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) as a focal point for integrated studies of meteorology, environmental science, animal behavior, botany, and the physical sciences--as well as math, language arts, geography, and other disciplines--all aided by modern telecommunications and computer technology.
