IARC Salon—Engaging community in local science

Apr 21, 2022 at 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Over the past decade, there has been an increasing push toward making science more relevant to affected communities. April’s IARC salon explores how scientists and their organizations engage with local communities to improve science, address local problems and build lasting relationships. Bring your questions to our panel discussion with:

  • Donna Hauser & Roberta Tuurraq Glenn (Alaska Arctic Observations & Knowledge Hub)
  • Christopher Arp (Fresh Eyes on Ice)
  • Zav Grabinski (Alaska Fire Science Consortium)

This semester’s IARC salon graduate student coordinators are Julian Dann and Sarah Clement. Julian is an interdisciplinary master’s student working on remote sensing of tundra disturbance and science communication. Sarah is a PhD student in natural resources & sustainability studying science education through community and citizen science. She is excited to explore issues around community engagement in science and cultural norms (and how they’re changing) in field work and graduate student experiences.
