Wings Over Water: a Multidisciplinary STEM education program based on Ospreys. The Montana Natural History Center has worked with researchers at University of Montana, for over a decade, to educate more than 50,000 young Montanans about STEM topics, by connecting them with wild Ospreys. The program has gained such momentum that we have formally expanded into middle school classrooms. The Wings Over Water program engages students in science, and excites interest in STEM careers. We provide intensive teacher training and direct outreach, immersing students in authentic research during field trips and lessons that span ecology, physics, math, aeronautics, and engineering.
