Hello everyone, and welcome back to the University of Wyoming's science communication blog, Engage Laramie Science!
Today, I want to introduce some of the aspiring science communicators via an assignment we completed last week. We were instructed to interview each other and produce around a 60 second sound bite about the researcher in question and their project. The goals were to practice interviewing and learning how to present scientific research to a non-scientific audience. I personally think we did a fantastic job accomplishing those objectives!
I've embedded a couple of those clips below, and I'll be slowly adding more over the next few days. For this post, I'm introducing Rich Walker and Bryan Maitland. Both Rich and Bryan are studying various aspects of aquatic ecosystems, which include human impacts and community structure. Have a listen, and feel free to comment on their research or if you have any questions!
