Faculty at PKAL 2019

The Friday before Spring Break, Chemistry and Biology faculty members (pictured L-R Dr. Dawn Ward; Dr. Lorie Lana (biology); Dr. Michelle Ivey) attended the Capital Project Kaleidoscope regional network conference in Bowie, MD. Dr. Ward presented a poster on "Preparing Chemists in the Digital Age", and Dr. Lana presented her work on "Integration of an Inquiry-Based Research Project into an Upper Level Immunology Course". The theme of the conference was "A Call to Action for Diversity and Inclusion in STEM”.

close up of crane with red head

Chemistry faculty member, Dr. George Lauterbach, is spending Spring Break visiting Tombstone, AZ to see the migrating Sand Hill Cranes.  These large cranes winter in southeast Arizona and migrate in huge flocks to the far reaches of northern Canada and into Siberia for breeding. The picture of the mass of birds shows about 2000 of them hanging out near a pond to rest up and begin their long trek. The close-ups show them in some detail. The red part on the head are not feathers but the skin on their head.    

owl in Mexico

Each winter, faculty member Dr. George Lauterbach and his wife, Janice, travel to Mexico to go birding.  They always share a special picture with us.  This year, they sent a picture of a hard-to-find bird that they’ve been looking for for years! It is the Colima Pygmy Owl.  This little owl is only 5 inches tall, hunts during the day, is ferocious, preys on other small birds and mammals, and nevertheless is adorable. This picture shows it actually facing away from the camera so you see its back.  Its head is twisted 180 degrees in response to Dr. Lauterbach's call.  It is indigenous to the western coast of Mexico and terrifies birds when it enters their habitat.

         Chemistry department holiday party

With the end of finals, faculty can finally catch their breath and have some fun. Faculty and friends of the chemistry department gathered together to celebrate the holidays at Dr. Ivey's house. We ate our favorite falafel pizza, munched on cookies and other sweet treats and played games. Until next year! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and All the Best in 2019!
