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!
Starting to dive in to the @katharinehayhoe book Saving Us, and I love how the Preface ends: “To care about climate change, you only need to be one thing, and that’s a person living on planet Earth who wants a better future. Chances are, you’re already that person-and so is everyone else you know.”
We wrapped up #EarthScienceWeek at @psubrandywine and the theme “Water Today and for the Future” with announcing the winners of our campus photography contest, along an Earth Science Week book display in the campus @vairolibrarypsu!
