Share on AGU’s blogs & social media channels

There are two new opportunities for scientists and science communicators to share their field work experiences on AGU’s blogosphere and social media channels:the new blog, The Field, is where scientists can share their adventures in field research. If you are engaged in field work and interested in contributing blog posts to The Field, or having an existing blog cross-posted to The Field, please email Larry O’Hanlon, AGU’s social media coordinator. They are also looking for scientists and science communicators to take over AGU’s Instagram account with photos of recent fieldwork. If you know of any scientists or science communicators who would be interested in taking over AGU’s Instagram account during or after a field trip, please email Lauren Lipuma, AGU’s public information specialist.

Looking for Volunteers

The 2017 Oregon Regional MATE ROV Competition will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 in Lincoln City. Over 200 elementary through college aged students will be bringing their student-built underwater robots to the Lincoln City Community Center to attempt this year’s mission tasks in the pools, as well as making presentations to panels of engineering judges, and having their marketing displays (posters) judged by communications specialists. Over 50 volunteers are needed to run this annual competition, including volunteers willing to serve as engineering judges, mission judges, marketing judges, divers, and to act as support staff for set-up, registration and food service.  For more information on the program, please visit the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center website.
