Inspiring a Love for Science and Nature through the Wonder and Excitement of Reptiles

Join The Reptile Youth Alliance 

Reptiles and amphibians face unique conservation challenges when compared to other animals. Profound social and cultural barriers result in high rates of persecution, less public support for conservation, and less priority in regards to research, attention, and funding. Furthermore, herpetofauna continue to decline in number with researchers now estimating that over 40% of the world’s studied amphibians (IUCN, 2018) and ~20% of studied reptiles are threatened with extinction worldwide.

The purpose of the Reptile Youth Alliance is to bring attention to problems such as habitat destruction, pollution, and human-wildlife conflict that complicate the efforts to protect herpetofauna and their habitats. The Reptile Youth Alliance is a national group of passionate young reptile enthusiasts that are provided an opportunity to connect with peers, mentors, learn about herpetofauna, their habitats, and how we can work together to increase conservation support for reptiles and amphibians among the public.

Writing with Snakes 

Fun and Engaging Workshops

Writing skills are essential in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields because they play a crucial role in communicating ideas, results, and findings to peers, superiors, and the public. Effective writing allows scientists, engineers, and technologists to clearly and concisely explain complex concepts, hypotheses, and technical details. Good writing also helps to build credibility and establish one's expertise in their field.

Engineering with Reptiles 

The Engineering Workshop for Kids is a hands-on, interactive program designed to introduce young students to the exciting world of engineering. Through fun and engaging activities, kids will have the opportunity to explore different engineering concepts, from mechanical and electrical engineering to robotics and computer programming. With a focus on problem-solving and critical thinking, this workshop will challenge students to think creatively and work collaboratively to build their own projects from scratch.

Each session will be led by experienced engineers and instructors who will provide guidance and support as kids bring their ideas to life. 

Sign Up

Whether they're designing and building a simple machine, programming a robot, or creating an electrical circuit, students will have the chance to see their projects come to life and experience the thrill of seeing something they've created actually work.
