Leticia and I partnered one again to bring you an interactive Google+ STEMchatOnAir! Our latest topic:
How do you become a dolphin trainer?
Ken Ramirez shared his thoughts. He basically has the job I once wanted, but no one ever laid out a career path for me. BTW, Leticia once dreamed of being a marine biologist.
Ken Ramirez is the Executive Vice President of Animal Care and Training at Chicago’s John G. Shedd Aquarium. He’s a biologist and animal behaviorist with more than 35 years of experience under his belt. He began his training career working with guide dogs for the visually impaired and has maintained a close affiliation to pet training throughout his career. In fact, Ken once hosted two seasons of the pet training television series, Talk to the Animals, which compared pet training to the important work done with training and caring for animals in zoological facilities.
You can watch the discussion here, but there’s not much to see, so feel free to hit play and just listen as though it was a podcast.
Technical Tips for Joining a G+ Hangout On Air
Add Kim Moldofsky to your circles. (While you’re at it add Leticia and The Maker Mom)
When I host #STEMchatOnAir (or the college admission series I recently started), I’ll create an event you can join on Google Plus. You’ll find the links to the event on the blog, Facebook Page, G+ Page and Twitter in the days leading up to the hangout.
Once you click confirm on the event, you’ll get a notification within G+ that will allow you to join the hangout once it is live.
Here are other tips for Google Plus Hangouts On Air.
