Explore with us as we step Into the Garden, a new virtual event series hosted by Scientist in Every Florida School and Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County. Scientists will uncover many mysteries in the garden through these virtual interactive trips, which will be live-streamed on Zoom and YouTube.

We are continuing the conversation with Dr. Carl Lipo to learn about the culture and innovation of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island. This is a story of the nature of science and the seemingly impossible journey that giant Moai sculptures took across the island. Catch up by watching the recording of Part One. This event is geared toward K-12 audiences but is open to all curious minds.
