Are dog tongues cleaner than human tongues? How do honeybees find their way home? Do baboons behave differently in the Prospect Park Zoo than in the wild? These are some of the questions that 12 student scientists explored through the American Museum of Natural History’s 14th Annual Young Naturalist Awards, a nationwide science-based research competition for kids in grades 7 through 12 funded by Alcoa Foundation.
