This will be a one hour virtual event where John will share his passion of science with us. It will be an opportunity for each of us to remember our passion and why we want to share it. 

The role of serendipity, creativity, and just downright luck in the scientific endeavor is rarely ever considered or discussed in mainstream media and especially the classroom.  Often, scientific investigations are presented as a regimented flowchart of steps known as “the scientific method.”  This method, invented by textbooks, doesn’t apply to a wide range of research projects.  Furthermore, future scientists may make career decisions, steering themselves away from the scientific fields, because of a fundamentally flawed understanding of what a scientist does on a day-to-day basis.  Dr. Taylor will take you through research conducted in Zion National Park, what the project was like and the happy accident that led to the discovery of a previously undetected specie of bat.
