If you haven’t already virtually followed me to Alaska, come and “join me” – LIVE – on the Lindsay in the Arctic blog! As Science Curator here at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, I am participating as an instructor for Science Communication at a Glaciology Summer School organized by the University of Alaska Fairbanks and supported by the National Science Foundation. I have joined 27 graduate students and 5 glaciology instructors from around the world in the tiny village of McCarthy, Alaska, and I am responsible for leading workshops on effective strategies for communicating science to the public. I am also keeping a blog to share this amazing experience with everyone, and have worked with scientists on writing and contributing posts for the blog too!
I have met amazing scientists here, seen spectacular glaciers, and learned more about how important healthy glaciers are to all of us – even in tropical Miami.
