Webb Students to Present at National Paleo Conference

Dr. Lofgren
This week seven Webb students, Alf Museum Collections Manager Gabe Santos, and Alf Museum Director Dr. Don Lofgren will attend the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) meeting in Calgary in order to participate in various research presentations. At SVP, students will see research presentations by paleontologists from all over the world and thus experience how recently complied scientific data is disseminated to the scientific community.
 
Webb students were coauthors on two abstracts: 1) “Mammalian biostratigraphy of high elevation Tertiary strata in the Gravelly Range of SW Montana,” by D. Lofgren, D. Hanneman, J, Bibbens ‘18, B. Kong ‘18, and A, Tarakji ’18; and 2) “A new azhdarchid pterosaur from the Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah,” by N. Carroll, A. Farke, S. Chai ‘17, and A. Oei ‘18.
 
The Webb seniors attending are: J. Bibbens, A. Tarakji, P. Raus, E. Lee, A. Bi, K. Henry, and B. Kong.
 
The paleontological research program at Webb continues to flourish as 58 Webb students have now coauthored a paper published in a paleontological research journal. Of the total number of 34 papers that have appeared, 22 were published in the last five years. The Webb Schools is the only high school in the United States with a nationally accredited natural history museum on its campus.

  • Stanford University Takes Stand Against Low Admit-Rate Frenzy

    Yesterday Stanford University announced it would no long publicize its admit-rate percentages in an effort to discourage the growing national obsession over which colleges and universities have the lowest admit-rates in America.

    Stanford’s provost wrote, “When Stanford publicizes its admission numbers during the enrollment cycle, the main result we observe is stories that aim to identify which universities experience the most demand and have the lowest admit rates.”

  • The Week @ Webb - Theme Week Edition

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a unique look into the activities both on and off Webb's campus. This past week was our annual class spirit event called Theme Week. Each grade level dresses up in the announced theme for four days to gain points for their respective class. At the end of the week, each of the classes performs a skit that will also count towards their overall point total. It's a hilarious week for students and faculty alike, so I hope you enjoy some of the standout costumes and images I collected in this gallery.
