DC – AGU URECAS

From the AGU-URECAS website:

“A planning workshop for a new initiative concerning two-year college student research was held at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) headquarters in Washington, DC July 11-13, 2012. This workshop brought together faculty from two-year colleges, four-year colleges and universities, and representatives from professional societies and federal organizations to learn more about how to support two-year college faculty and students engaged in Earth and space science research and to discuss the development of a program to strengthen the role of two-year college Earth and space science students in the future workforce.”

I was honored to be one of the faculty that applied and was accepted to attend this workshop.  The workshop gave me another opportunity to discuss undergraduate research with a range of professionals from across the nation (even Alaska!).  I was able to share what I have done with the freshmen and sophomore undergraduate research students that I mentor and also share information about the resources CUR (Council on Undergraduate Research) has available to help faculty that mentor students in the first two years.  I even helped share some of the workshop information with live tweeting!

That’s a “W” for the Sixers today! Now if the other Philly team can get a “W” tomorrow…. Nice to see Franklin and Swoop supporting each other. We’re not called The City of Brotherly Love for nothin’!
Starting #SciArtFriday by cutting fabric for a new @joides_resolution #EXP390 quilt. I’ve never focused so much on cutting! The fabric is Three Cats/Da Gama Textiles that is made in South Africa & where I purchased it post-expedition. No room for errors - it’s a long way to get more! (unless @clairerouty wants to go with me to Cape Town again! 😂)
Dropped these winter hats off at the @psu_bw_socialimpact center today. So glad that my de-stressing #crocheting can provide some winter gear for campus students (but 7 hats made in the past month - eek! It’s been an interesting start to the semester….)
I like to celebrate the small victories… like sewing a zipper for the first time! I took a class today at #vikingsewinggallery and made a pillow with a hidden zipper. Oh, the future possibilities….
I'm excited to share the first quilt in my new mini quilt collection. It is a celebration of the Endangered Species Act, which turns 50 this year. I'll be restarting #FrontDoorScience this year to share a new quilt each month with those walking through the neighborhood. I'm starting with this one (& thanks to @legalquilts for picking up the center fabric for me while I was out to sea! It is serving as the inspiration for the collection.). To learn more about this quilt, click on link in bio.
