Sept 6 Discussion

September 12, 2007 at 11:49 pm 3 comments

Present: Cameron Kellett, Jordan Kohn, Look Tobin, Erin McCowen, Kassi Dallavis, Laura Mulshine, Luke Frischkoff, and Alan Shusterman

Seminar alert: Sept 27, Dr. Jennifer Field, Dept Env. & Molecular Toxicology, OSU, will be speaking to Reed’s Chemistry department. Dr. Field was recently a guest on National Public Radio’s Science Friday (Aug 24, Hour 2, free MP3 download) and described how municipal sewage can be monitored for illegal drug use. She will go to lunch with students and is especially interested in talking with students about research opportunities in environmental science. Meet in the Chemistry building lobby at noon.

Survey of week’s stories:

Note to members: Sorry, but not only is this list incomplete, I mostly didn’t have links to your stories so I found some of my own. If you were fond of your story and want to interest others (AND WHY NOT?) so that we might consider for future meetings, post a comment and put the link inside the comment. It’s easy. Come see me for help. I’ve got unused office hours to burn.

There’s more in my notes, but maybe you should take charge and post some comments?

    Kassi has connections at a local farm that “harvests” methane from its livestock to use as fuel to power the farm and might be able to arrange for us to visit. Laura and I volunteered to drive.

  • […] State) is scheduled to speak to the Chemistry department on Thurs, Sept 27. I had announced at our Sept 6 meeting that she would be having lunch with interested students on that day, but that is no longer possible […]
