YOUNG VOICES OF SCIENCE
For the academic year of 2022-2023, I am acting as the student coordinator for the Young Voices of Science Program, a free science, semester-long science communication workshop launched by Hubbard Brook Research Foundation for undergraduates and graduates in the environmental sciences. As student coordinator, my tasks range from organizing the guest speakers for our weekly workshops to directly mentoring students on crafting their outreach projects.
In the spring of 2022, I served as an undergraduate teaching assistant (UGTA) for Professor Matt Ayres’ Ecology course, an introductory biology course I took my freshman fall at Dartmouth. As a UGTA for Ecology, I helped facilitate the laboratory section of the course, leading students on field trips to local streams and forests to collect data, giving presentations on how best to formulate a scientific paper, and finally, mentoring students individually on creating research questions and analyzing their data. This experience certainly made me a better scientist myself, and it was incredibly enriching to see students grow as scientists.
