Savannah Science Seminar @ Skidaway

A group of approximately 35 local high school students visited UGA Skidaway Institute on the evening of Monday, March 27, to get a close-up look at some Skidaway research. The students were participants in the Savannah Science Seminar, a nine-month-long program designed to promote an understanding and appreciation for science through informative, participatory presentations and hands-on workshops in the fields of engineering, technology, mathematics and the medical practices.

Julia Diaz organized the evening’s program. After an introductory talk by Jim Sanders, the students were split into three groups that rotated among three science stations.

Catherine Edwards explained the workings of autonomous underwater vehicles.

Patrick Duffy and Sean Anderson demonstrated the workings of the new LIME imaging lab.

Julia Diaz and Sydney Plummer discussed eutrophication and phytoplankton blooms.
