    Saturday Symposium Inherit the Wind: A Century of Controversy
    Mar. 23rd, 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
    Roselle Center for the Arts
    From the Scopes “Monkey Trial” in 1925 when a teacher was arrested for teaching evolution, to 2005 when a Dover, Pennsylvania schoold district's mandate to teach intelligent design was challenged, controversy has raged over issues of science and religion, free speech and academic freedom. Join us for a day exploring these issues. More Information - www.cas.udel.edu/saturday-symposium/inherit-the-wind

    Climate Change Podcast Sessions
    Mar. 27th, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
    ISLL 110 & 215
    Students will be presenting a live run through of their Spring 2019 Science Communication Projects. Students will present a 5-8 minute podcast segment on how climate change is impacting a local ecosystem of their choice, and what the public should know about the implications of these changes to the local ecosystem. The Delaware Museum of Natural History, who has been collaborating with us on our science communication projects, will be in attendance to provide students with feedback for improvements for their final draft. Please contact Dr. Stefanie DeVito (sdevito@udel.edu) or ISLL Director Dr. Donna Woulfe (dswoulfe@udel.edu) for more information.

    iBC Field Collection
    Apr. 24th, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
    Bogy Run (North Campus), Cool Run (East Campus), and the UD Farm (South Campus)
    Students will be collecting field samples and making observations at three stream sites on/near UD’s campus (indicated on the map) as part of their Aquatic Ecology lab module in Bisc 208/Chem 108. Student groups will be recording chemical, biological, and physical characteristics of the streams as part of their independent investigations of local stream ecosystems. The three stream locations are along Bogy Run (North Campus), Cool Run (East Campus), and the UD Farm (South Campus). UD faculty, staff, or students who are out enjoying the spring weather are welcome to stop by the Bogy Run or Cool Run sites to learn a little bit about what the students are doing. The students will present posters on their research on May 15th and 16th in the ISE Lab, and these presentations are also open to the UD community. Please contact Dr. Christopher Trimby (trimby@udel.edu) or ISLL Director Dr. Donna Woulfe (dswoulfe@udel.edu) for more information.
