ECOGIG: ECOGIG recently launched this season’s Science and the Stadium events. This year, ECOGIG is traveling with their Ocean Discovery Zone exhibit to other institutions within their consortium, and their first event of the fall season took place at Penn State in early September. In October, they attended the University of Georgia vs. Tennessee football game at UGA and traveled to Florida State University for the FSU vs. Wake Forest football game. To learn more about ECOGIG’s Ocean Discovery Zone and their Science at the Stadium series, visit the ECOGIG website here. Check out photos from the September event at Penn State here and a short video here!

LADC-GEMM: Kendal Leftwich is a physics teacher at Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is also pursuing a PhD in physics at the University of New Orleans and is currently a graduate student with the LADC-GEMM consortium. Taking advantage of this unique connection, Mr. Leftwich is working with students from his physics class to analyze LADC-GEMM acoustic data from the 2015 field season. The goal of the partnership is to help the students learn how to analyze and interpret data from the field and also provide them an opportunity to communicate and share their results.
