February Luncheon and Elections

Please join Women of Water for a luncheon and presentation by Maura Hahnenberger, Assistant Professor Geosciences Department Salt Lake Community College

This presentation will highlight iUtah WaterGirls, an outreach program focused on participatory water science. iUtah WaterGirls is a field experience program for middle school students to monitor water quality in the canyons in the Salt Lake Valley. We will explore the motivation for and effectiveness of scientific field experiences in engaging students in placebased learning and for increasing interest of girls in STEM careers. The objective of this presentation is to share the value of citizen science and water outreach for both students, citizens, and scientists.

This meeting will also be our annual meeting. We will be holding elections for President, Secretary, Communication Director and Funding Director. Get your nominations for yourself or others in ASAP to Marie Owens at marieo@jvwcd.org. Marie can also provide more information about the job description of each position. Each position has a two year term.

The luncheon will be held Wednesday, February 24, 2016 from 12-1:30pm at AECOM, 756 E Winchester Street, Suite 400, Salt Lake City, UT.  (We will be meeting in the Aggie Conference Room).
