I mentioned in the March blog that participating in the City Nature Challenge is simple. All you do is find wildlife, take a picture, and share it on the iNaturalist app.
Do you and your family have cabin fever? Do you want to participate in community science efforts in Hampton Roads? Do you love The Mariners’ Park and other natural areas around our region? Well look no further– we have the event for you!
Hampton Roads City Nature Challenge, April 30 to May 3, 2021
In mid-February, we shared the amazing story of American mathematician Dr. Galdys B. West and her important contributions to modern navigation. Dr. West created the geoid, an accurate mathematical model of the earth that laid the foundation for the technology of the Global Positioning System (GPS).
Today we are continuing this mini-series featuring women who shaped the world. Let’s go back in time and learn more about the mathematician and “Jane of all trades” named Janet Taylor.
Celebrating International Day of Women, Girls in Science, and Black History Month!
Today, February 11, 2021, is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The day is meant to honor and celebrate the contributions to the sciences made by women and girls globally, and take a stance of commitment to continually expand the sciences to be more accessible and inclusive to women and girls. The 2021 theme is focusing on COVID-19. A technology that is essential to accurately tracking data associated with COVID-19 is the Global Positioning System (GPS).
Today’s post is in honor and celebration of Pollinator Week!
