Ocean Commotion is an outreach event hosted by The Louisiana Sea Grant College Program that gives students the chance to learn about and touch the products of the sea and coast—the aquatic animals, plants, and minerals—upon which Louisiana's citizens are so dependent. Every year our lab provides an interactive exhibit that informs students of the diversity of plankton as well as the methods used to study them. This year's event will be on October 28, 2014 at the LSU Pete Maravich Center.
Science Moving forward is a group whose mission is to promote the success of both women and men in science and continue to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities in science fields and careers. The group consists of faculty, research associates, graduate and undergraduate students, and both men and women.
Our discussion includes topics such as the issues of gender in science and the role scientists play as public advisors and advocates. We also have discussions and workshops to teach skills such as the use of technology in science communication, time management, and tips for success in job applications. Everyone is welcome so please pass the word! Science Moving Forward will meet multiple times a month from 12-1 pm in room 2215 ECE
