ENVS naturalist and department chair Jason Hamilton will be teaching two classes this summer that can bring you into closer contact with the local landscape.
ENVS Lecturer, Xanthe Matychak, will sit on a panel next week alongside Neil Gershenfeld to discuss The Future of Manufacturing at the DigiFab Conference at MIT.
After the conference, she is attending a UNY I-Corps workshop to train as a mentor. NSF I-Corps is a program that helps academics commercialize their technological inventions. If you'd like to know more about the program, ask Xanthe or see this site: http://unyicorps.org/
Chris Sinton, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Sciences, is a co-author on a web-based teaching module on Water, Agriculture, and Sustainability. The five units in the module provide “a framework for students to learn about how people interact with water, peer into our water future, and consider ways we might foster more sustainability in water management.” This is one of several modules and classes that are part of the NSF-supported Interdisciplinary Teaching about Earth for a Sustainable Future (InTeGrate) program. The module is available for public use at http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/water_sustainability/index.html.
