Tuesday: Lunch With a Scientist
UC Davis Hydrology student Noelle Patterson talks about her research on Cottonwoods in the Truckee River Basin.
Join us on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. PST on Facebook Live
Each week Headwaters will introduce you to a new scientist who will present their research and answer questions from the audience. This is a great way to still give students exposure to science-related careers while learning remotely.
Worksheets: Below each talk is a downloadable homework assignment.
