Brumby Elementary Students Skype with Primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall  

Almost 60 years, Dr. Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is now Tanzania to begin what is today is considered a historic study of wild chimpanzees.  

Students at Brumby Elementary School recently had the opportunity to Skype with the world-famous Primatologist and Anthropologist about her work with primates. Ashley Tappan’s third-grade class and Krista Smith’s fourth-grade class watched a presentation by Dr. Goodall and then were able to submit questions to Dr. Goodall and her team from the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots program.  

The Brumby students even got a chance to take a Skype selfie with Dr. Goodall.  

The Jane Goodall Institute is a global nonprofit focused on inspiring individual action to improve the understanding and welfare of great apes and to safeguard the planet. To learn more about the Roots and Shoots program available through Microsoft visit here:
