College Prep Diatoms Class: August 2-7, 2015

Diatom Class

Iowa Lakeside Lab and Regents Resource Center and the Friends of Lakeside Lab were pleased to host nine high school students and one high school teacher during the College Prep Diatoms Class in August. For the first time, this class was offered for college credit courtesy of the University of Iowa. Lakeside alum Dr. Sylvia Lee, Ph.D., at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY, and Kerry Howard, Ph.D. candidate in Geological Studies at University of Nevada, Reno, returned again this year to instruct the course. The week proved to be a great success with students studying advanced material on diatoms. They learned how to read and use scientific papers, and were introduced to advanced statistics with the R program. The class utilized Google+ for submitting coursework, posting diatom photos, and providing feedback. Students reported enjoying the vigorous coursework, the lab and field work, and living on the Lakeside campus for a week. Thanks to Sylvia and Kerry for their excellent instruction and enthusiasm! Much gratitude goes out to Iowa Lakeside Lab for their continued support of this terrific program!
