Next in the series of what chemistry faculty did this summer is Professor Tim Dwyer's trip to Colorado in July.  You may already know that Dr. Dwyer is originally from Colorado and that most of his extended family still lives there. Seeing his family was overdue because of Covid, and he was able to be present for his dad's 80th birthday celebration.

Dr. Dwyer took two of his kids with him on this trip. If you've ever had Dr. Dwyer as a professor, it's likely you know all three of his kids' (and his pets'!) names. They all enjoyed time with their family, hiking in Red Rocks, rock climbing and took in a Colorado Rapids soccer game together.

Next in the series on what chemistry professors are up to this summer is Professor Tracey Mason. Dr. Mason took a road trip with a friend to Eau Claire Wisconsin in July. The trip was made to celebrate the marriage of a friend who's party had already been postponed once due to Covid. On the way back she stopped in Chicago to visit Millennium Park and the Navy Pier. The forest fires out west made the air thick over the skyline.

Dr. Ward Summer Reunion

Next in our faculty summer series, Professor Dawn Ward enjoyed a huge family reunion in New Jersey that was so special that it was featured on Good Morning America. What makes this such an amazing story is the tenacity with which her family has stayed connected EVERY week throughout the pandemic. Watch the full story by clicking the photo. Dr. Ward can be seen celebrating with her family! 

Dr. Ivey Mississippi

In this second post highlighting faculty summer activities, Professor Michelle Ivey is cruising up the Mississippi from New Orleans to St. Louis via riverboat.  The eleven day cruise includes many interesting ports and sights, including Graceland and historic homes and plantations, while hearing from an onboard Civil War Historian. The cruise was a bit of normalcy enjoyed by Dr. Ivey and her family.

While things are getting slowly back to somewhat normal, our faculty are doing some fun and exciting things over the summer break. To start off this series, we are highlighting the efforts of Professor Jeremy Burkett and looking for your help!

Dr. Burkett is practicing concise communication of a scientific topic. The Veritasium Channel on YouTube (#VeritasiumContest) is hosting a contest to see how well someone can explain a complex topic in about a minute. You can watch Dr. Burkett's communication entry here:

If you think he succeeded in concise communication, just your view will help, but LIKING the video will also help get his video in front of the judges. Good luck Dr. Burkett!
