The summer of 2020 was supposed to be one of exploration, discovery, and mentorship for students in the geosciences.
But then the pandemic happened.
Laboratories shuttered their doors; research vessels stayed docked.
Many of the mentorship programs students applied to are now navigating the still-uncharted waters of the “new normal” and working to provide quality, albeit remote, mentorship.
STEMSEAS—short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Student Experiences Aboard Ships—is one such program.
Run out of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, the National Science Foundation–funded initiative has been a gateway for more than 125 students to experience ocean science up close every summer since 2016. In a normal year, STEMSEAS gives undergraduates the opportunity to spend 6–10 days aboard a U.S. Academic Research Fleet research vessel with experienced faculty mentors as the ship makes transits between expeditions.

LAS CRUCES – Small unmanned aircraft system virtual workshops were held by staff from New Mexico State University’s Physical Science Laboratory in collaboration with the USDA Agricultural Research Service Scientific Computing Program Sept. 30 and Oct. 7. Scientists want to expand research opportunities, and sUAS are a way of collecting more and new data. The PSL team was asked by the USDA ARS to help guide new potential sUAS users on the best practice approaches to safely and effectively using this technology for research.
Season 4 of Fortnite: Chapter 2 is rolling along across consoles and PC. This season has introduced a ton of changes to Epic’s hit battle royale shooter, bringing the likes of Thor, Iron Man, Groot, She-Hulk, Storm, and other Marvel superheroes into the game to thwart an invasion by Galactus.
Of course, a new season also means new challenges, and there are already a ton for players to complete. Clearing these tasks will level up your Season 4 battle pass, which in turn will unlock exclusive Marvel-themed cosmetics. In addition to the standard weekly missions, Epic is rolling out a separate set of Wolverine challenges over the course of the season, which you’ll need to complete to unlock the Wolverine skin. There are also Awakening challenges that will unlock emotes and other cosmetic flourishes for Season 4’s other Marvel skins.
Although Season 4 is underway on most platforms, you cannot
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Configuring socially distanced lab spaces for 2,900 general chemistry students was logistically impossible, so Purdue University’s beginning chemistry labs are taking place online this fall, the next best thing to being there.
Or maybe better.
Well before the virus pandemic, Purdue’s Department of Chemistry was working on a “next-generation digital learning environment for chemistry.” That it happened to be highly useful in a pandemic is just fortuitous. While the virus accelerated development over the summer, the motive from the start in 2018 was to better apply technology to improve the student learning experience.
A core element of that is the development of a digital lab manual and digital lab notebook, which Purdue chemistry students on campus and online are using for the first time during the fall semester, replacing the traditional paper versions.
In a digital version, the traditional lab manual becomes an interactive multimedia resource
