She has taught botany and led flower dissection labs to groups varying from second graders to senior citizens. Following her training on The Climate Project presentation with former U. S. vice president/environmentalist Al Gore in 2007, she has presented "Climate Project Investigation: The Case of the Warming Planet" to numerous audiences, planned and implemented a Green Science public event and is creating a hands-on Alternative Energy Lab to offer students in the fall of 2008. She has also worked extensively with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Becky gives presentations at state and national science conferences on the subjects of robotics, space science and grossology (the gross aspects of the human body). In recent years, her main focus has been working with design teams for interactive exhibits, including BodyQuest, Bugs Backyard and Space Chase.
