Are you interested in adding more foods to your diet that are sustainably sourced? How appetizing would insects be to you? I can't wait for the next virtual lecture with @visitmediapa's Delaware County Institute of Science, which is on this exact topic! Join Dr. Emily Moscato from @saintjosephs University on March 8th at 7:30PM (ET) to see how society can move towards producing and consuming more sustainable foods. The lecture is free (registration required) at: https://tinyurl.com/dcislectureseries
Today was the first day of a "Sustainability in Our Curriculum" workshop. From now through May, I'm with a cohort of faculty in Penn State's College of Earth & Mineral Sciences (@psu_ems) to develop sustainability-related curriculum for our EMS courses. I look forward to working with others for new ideas, perspectives, and resources to address areas that I need to develop further for my students.
For February, I made a mini-quilt for my front door I’ve titled I HeART Earth Science. It represents both my identity as an Earth scientist and the creative way I communicate science. The big read heart in the middle represents not just my heart for my work and where my creativity originates, but Planet Earth. The green and blue batik fabrics around the heart represent land and water, the Earth systems of hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere, and lithosphere - the complex systems that interact with each other and provide the foundation for the living and non-living components of our environments.
Beautiful/chilly day to get out for a walk - or, to finally get the car out for a drive! (until tomorrow’s snow...)
In the month of January, I gave the walkers in my neighborhood something different to look at each day - a growing record of weather comparisons! For my January 2021 #SciDoor, I crocheted a temperature record of the maximum daily temperature recorded in this area from 50 years ago, and compared that value to this year. Slowly, day-by-day, I built out the record of comparing temperatures (left side is 1971, right side is 2021), with row 1 being the data for January 1st, row 2 representing the temperature data for January 2nd, etc. It was a fun way to start the day each morning, crocheting a row at a time!
