Earth and Environmental Sciences Seminar: "Northern Rocky Mountains Course Experience"

UNI Earth and Environmental science students will share their adventures from their August trip to the northern Rocky Mountains. Learn about the impacts of climate change upon alpine glaciers, forest fires and human-landscape interactions. We will also discuss the relative roles of wilderness, sustainability and industrial tourism within our national parks system.

Halloween House

The UNI Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), in collaboration with students from biology, physics and earth science, will host a “Halloween House.” This event is free and open to the public. Costumes are welcome. The activities are intended for elementary age children, but can be enjoyed by children of all ages.

Lecture: "Expelling Injustice from Iowa's Schools"

Derrick Darby, Univerity of Michigan, will reflect philosophically on the issue of justice in the Iowa school system in which black students perform below the national average in test scores, have lower scores than white students, are less likely than whites to graduate high school and are four times more likely than white students to be disciplined and removed from class. The lecture is open to the public, free of charge.  

Big Data, Small Satellites: Using Daily Earth Imaging to Change the World

Joe Breu, team lead for the global ground station network at the Earth imaging company Planet Labs, will outline the brief history of Planet Labs and its mission to provide information to those that can effect global change for the better. It will cover the capabilities of Planet's spacecraft, their engineering and design process, orbital mechanics, and the global ground network that provides services to the satellites.
