Rivers Lab: The Book Club for River Geeks
"Rivers Lab is a paper/report reading and discussion group assembled so that we can, as a community of river lovers, break down the prestigious walls of academic papers to learn more about the systems we care for and have a chance to ask questions, discuss, and enjoy each other’s company.
Rivers Lab is a no pressure environment and a great way to learn more about the ecosystems surrounding us by reading relative scientific literature. Encourage your friends to join – the more diversity of thought, the merrier!
Here’s how Rivers Lab works:
We will meet from 12:00-1:00 on the last Thursday of every month in SYRCL’s conference room (BYO lunch).
Everyone reads the papers beforehand (1-2 papers per month)
Be on time, show up 5 minutes early even!
If you are able, please bring
A copy of the paper (hard or online)
Paper / pens / laptop / tablet for taking notes
Questions, comments, critiques, compliments about the paper
Ideas for future topics and discussions
A readiness to practice scientific literacy with your community!
We look forward to some fun and engaging discussions! See you there!"
