Women In Science: Field-Based Learning Connects & Empowers Students from the Hudson to Greenland

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Free

Join DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program’s Free Virtual Winter Speaker Series!

Meet and learn from scientists, community leaders, and environmental educators who work at the intersection of research, education, and environmental and social justice. Engage in discussions about water quality research, dam removals, field-based learning, and overcoming barriers and challenges in the field of science and education.

The field is the best teacher and ‘classroom’ for both educators and students providing a richness of questions and experiences. Together we will explore some key take-aways from local work with youth on the Hudson, as well as work we have been doing in Greenland, working to bring more hands-on, inter-generational, and problem based learning into their education.

Featured Speaker: Margie Turrin
