The eyes of high school AP Biology students lit up as Dr. Gabrielle Russo, a professor of anthropology at SUNY Stony Brook, led a hands-on lesson regarding the evolution of bipedalism during their class on Nov. 8.

“This was such an amazing opportunity for these students,” said AP biology teacher Susan Monahan. “They were able to apply the knowledge and make a connection to what we have been learning in class.” 

During the session with Dr. Russo, the students first listened to a college-level lecture and then observed and compared skeletal samples of modern day humans and ancient human fossils.
