Science students from colleges around the country took a break from a national conference on September 29 to tour the Mesa Lab with EO's Teri Eastburn and Tim Barnes. They also heard words of welcome from NCAR director Tim Killeen and SCD's Wes Wildcat.
The students were in Denver for the annual meeting of the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS). UNAVCO and UCAR
co-hosted the tour of ML, as well as tours of other Denver-area geoscience facilities, to help inform the students about careers in the field.
At the SACNAS conference, second-year SOARS protégé Shanna-Shaye Forbes was awarded best student poster in computer science.
