In this episode of Locally Sourced Science we talk with Dr. Avery August and Dr. Melanie Ragin about the Howard Hughes Medical Institute-Cornell University Research Transfer program (CURT), which helps transfer students at Cornell University to gain vital experience in undergraduate research.
We’ll also discuss different ways to access solar energy in the Finger Lakes Area with Erica Herman, an energy educator from Get Your GreenBack Tompkins
In this episode of Locally Sourced Science, contributor Candice Limper speaks with Dr. Daniela Hedwig. She is the Edward W. Rose Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
Dr. Hedwig works in the Bioacoustics Research Program in the
Elephant Listening Project. In the first
part of this interview, Dr. Hedwig first talks about her Ph.D. research on the
vocal behavior of gorillas in the Central African Republic. In the second part of the interview, she
discusses her research on the vocalization of forest elephants in the
rainforests of the Congo Basin.
Also in this episode, Esther Racoosin visits the Annual Trials Garden at the Cornell Botanic Gardens. She speaks with Kendra Hutchins, program coordinator for the Cornell Annual Flower Trials, and Dr. William Miller, research director of the trials.
In this second episode of the Shoals Marine Laboratory series, Mark Sarvary visited White and Seavey islands to talk to the Tern conservation team about their research. Mark and co-instructor Kitty Gifford took Applied Science Communication students to the islands where they had a chance to handle the seabirds and these students briefly reflected on their experiences.
In the late 19th century Appledore Island was an artist colony, and Celia Thaxter’s garden was the center of this colony. What happened to this garden since then? Mark Sarvary investigates it in this episode.
The hosts, Laura Mortelliti and Jasmin Mack received a quick visit from Lindsey Baxter of the Harrington Lab, and she spoke about a new Citizen Science project, identifying Asian Tiger Mosquitos. Those who are interested in being involved should visit the Northeast Regional Center for Excellence in Vector-Borne Diseases.
Your hosts, Laura Mortelliti, Jasmine Mack, and Mark Sarvary discuss science and art, and visit the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island in Maine to talk to Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Seavey about research, education, art, science and much more.
Hannah Weinstein interviewed the artist in residence, Barrett McDevitt (www.barrettmcdevitt.com) who painted on the island for two weeks and visited science classes to connect science and art.
