Lizards, pythons and birds, oh my!

Our friends at Amazing Animals Inc. brought their friends – the animal variety – to meet our 5th and 6th grade summer campers during Operant Science Conditioning: The Science of Animal Training.

The kids were able to get up close and personal with a Blue-and-gold Macaw, bearded dragon, cockatiel, alligator, savannah monitor, African spurred tortoise, Burmese python and rat snake!

All week, the campers have learned the science behind animal training and behavior; studied the teachings of Skinner and Pavlov; and prepared how to train their pet at home. To close their busy week, they'll participate in a husbandry class at the Central Florida Zoo!

Check out the photos below! There are three more weeks of summer camp at the Science Center. If you would like to enroll your child in summer camp call 407.514.2112.
