Outreach and Education Update
The Hubbard Brook Research Foundation, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and Stonyfield Organic co-hosted the NH Youth Climate and Clean Energy Town Hall on February 5 in Concord, NH. See the above "Hubbard Brook in the News" section for selected media coverage of the event.
On February 13, Nat Cleavitt, Sarah Thorne, Amey Bailey, and the Forest Society's Carrie Deegan held a workshop for teachers about the sugar maple regeneration community science project. This new collaborative aspect of the project will involve teachers and students in the study plots and engage them in classroom activities—potentially including tree identification and measurement, leaf and seed collections and sorting, and field trips to Hubbard Brook.
Lindsey Rustad and others from Hubbard Brook will participate in the NH Department Of Education's NH Girls Technology Day on March 18 at NHTI in Concord. For the “Ice Women of Hubbard Brook” session, women who participated in the Ice Storm Experiment will stand in front of their portrait and tell their STEM story, talk about their role in the experiment, and answer questions from the girls.
