Effective science communication takes a lot of time and practice. Maggie Beetstra, Ph.D., our current National Sea Grant College Program #Knauss Fellow, describes how her research with Midwestern farmers improved her science communication skills and revealed how much she has to learn from them. Read more below:

Before becoming an Ohio Sea Grant Knauss Fellow, Maggie Beetstra spent hours talking with farmers about conservation.

Now, Maggie is applying the same science communication approaches to her work with NOAA Education See her lessons learned: bit.ly/beetstra-knauss-blog.

Check out the latest Watershed Chronicles from North American Association for Environmental Education - NAAEE!

“Spring is just starting to pop up in Western New York. In our streets, the flowers of red and silver maples are opening, just in time to witness 30 students and 7 educators stepping outside, noting the cloud cover, and stepping back in to report their data. We are all looking at our world with fresh eyes, but thanks to this Watershed STEM grant, we’re not all seeing the same thing.”

What are students and staff seeing at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve? For this Watershed Wednesday, read this month’s Watershed Chronicle: bit.ly/SteppingOutside

Through eeBLUE, a partnership between the NOAA B-WET, NOAA Education, North American Association for Environmental Education - NAAEE, and supported by U.S. Department of Education, 30 environmental education organizations were awarded grants to provide watershed-related STEM projects. This blog post is the seventh monthly Watershed Chronicles post featuring the grantees and their work.
