PA – Quilting during Science-a-Thon 2020

October 16, 2020 by Dr. G

Each year, I look forward to participating in the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) Science-a-Thon, a social media effort during Earth Science Week to help others see the life of a scientist beyond the laboratory and fieldwork. I created a blog post about my Science-a-Thon adventures in Maine back in 2017, and I was looking forward to participating this year while at sea on the JOIDES Resolution. Unfortunately, my research cruise has been postponed to a future date – but that didn’t stop me from sharing my updated challenge for the week – to create my next science quilt to support my Stitching Hope for the Louisiana Coast collection. Check out my series of tweets below to see the process I use for creating a quilt (at least this quilt!).

Day 5 of #DayOfScience @scienceathon! I started with the Penn State Water Council, connected with my undergrad student researcher, then gave a campus presentation on my sabbatical work last year, which included #SciQuilt, leading a pod w/the URGE (Unlearning Racism in Geoscience) program, & volunteering with the @americangeophysicalunion
Day 4 of #DayOfScience had more student meetings, a meeting w/the faculty Equity Pedagogy Group, & taking a break before more meetings! I took advantage of the nice weather to read more of this book, which I’m discussing weekly with the @womensaquaticnetwork book circle. @scienceathon
Day 3 of #DayOfScience and I had a television interview (via Zoom!). For those of you living in Massachusetts, look for me on Innovation Showcase with Jay Sugarman, where I discuss my journey into science quilting! @scienceathon #SciQuilt #SciComm
For my second #DayOfScience during the @scienceathon, it was seven student meetings and a Faculty Senate meeting - too much Zoom time! So I zipped out for a walk around the neighborhood before finishing up a project this evening. I volunteer with the Delaware County Institute of Science in Media (pictured here & on my walking route!), and last night I ran their first lecture of their 2021-2022 Lecture Series in Zoom. I need to finish editing the recorded video and post online to continue the education and engagement!
Excited to start the @scienceathon this week! On my first #DayOfScience, I have a meeting with a colleague, four student appointments, and I’m presenting on a faculty panel for MNSU for their Bringing Research into the Classroom Certificate program - & that’s all before lunch!
