    Hi Lab folks–I am on a really interesting PhD committee in UF’s dept of engineering.

    Shashank Ranjan–who needs user study participants as follows–

    “We are looking for participants for a user study to test novel software for multispectral analysis and visualization of paleontological specimens. Our software can automatically identify the composition of fossils, reveal and enhance invisible features in fossilized bone and even reconstruct the original appearance of prehistoric specimens. Participants of the study can use the software and request customizations for their research. If you are interested to know more, Dr MacFadden said he would invite me soon to one of your lab meetings.”

    So please let either Bruce or Shashank (below) if you are interested. I sincerely encourage you to reach out to him.

    [email protected] Dr. Toler-Franklin is Shanshank’s major professor and a Museum faculty affiliate.

    We’ve been asked to do the inquiry lesson using fossil kits for pre-service Elementary school teachers again. There are three classes: one on Monday, on Thursday, and on Friday. Ideally, we will have at least 2 presenters per class. Please fill out this Doodle Poll to indicate your availability to help with this classroom visit. https://doodle.com/poll/6cxw6xuhbhfwfmba

    Keep in mind, the presentation and kits are already made, so you will just need to present the material.

    We will be having our first paleotutorial meeting tomorrow Wednesday at 12:50 in Carr 211. If you are available please join us. However, if the storm has disrupted you, I would understand if you cannot make it.

    Looking forward to start back with this. Bruce

    If any one is interested, I will be stepping down as Vice President of the Southeastern Section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and they will be looking for a new rep.

    So far I have helped form a social media committee with two officers for our Facebook and Twitter accounts, helped promote and review the Outstanding Earth Science Teacher’s award, and edit the website. There are no defined roles, although I have made note of everything I have done so it would be easy to transfer to someone else – otherwise the role is flexible to make of it what you will. It would be an easy way for a graduate student (or two) to be involved with a society.

    It would be good if someone from Florida was on the board, especially since our group has such a strong connection to K-12 teachers (that’s who the society focuses on, it’s just run by faculty at universities). Please bring this up at the upcoming meeting! I’m happy to answer any questions.

    It has been quite a challenge to find a time for us to meet.

    Our first weekly meeting will be at 12:50 pm (period 6) in CRR 211 on 4 September (next week). If any of you would like to meet one-on-one, let me know. See you then, Bruce

    Everyone now knows their weekly schedules. It looks like Wednesdays period 6 (12:50) will work. I will move forward with getting us a room in Biology–I’m presuming that is a convenient place.

    still waiting for everyone’s schedule to become finalized this week. No lab meeting this week. Hopefully next week as indicated below, if all works out.

    In looking at the Doodle Poll so far, I’m hoping that Wednesdays at 11:45 will ultimately work (I know that at least one of you do not yet know your schedule). Location TBD, but likely on Dickinson side of campus.

    Hi, all – I have heard back from the Archaeologists for Autism group. Would anyone be interested in spearheading an exhibitor table there for VP and VP related activities? Here are the details I got from Tom:

    When: November 16th 2019; 9:30 – 3:00 pm

    Where: Historic Sams House at the Pine Island Conservation Area, 6195  North Tropical Trail, Merritt Island, Brevard County, Fl [outdoors]

    Who: 300-400 individuals many falling on the autism spectrum but also with accompanying family and friends.

    They provide snacks, drinks, and lunch. They would also be interested in some fossils for the dig pit and he mentioned he usually coordinates with Richard for this but would be thankful if we could help with that.

    They also request a $35 fee for the table and chairs set up or a donation to the silent auction of an equivalent value.

    Here is Tom’s email: [email protected] if you are going to take charge let me know otherwise I can tell him we are no longer able to attend as I will not be able to coordinate this event.

    Hi, all –

    I’m the VP of the SE section of NAGT and there is an upcoming award nomination deadline for an Outstanding Earth Science Teacher: https://nagt.org/nagt/awards/oest-nom.html

    There is a brief application to fill out but we need some nominations from Florida – there are currently only 2 in for our entire section and they are from Mississippi. I am happy to help write up responses but don’t know any FL teachers intimately. I am going to make up a post for the SE NAGT Facebook page today so I can share it into FAST and teacher groups on FB but please please consider nominating someone you have worked with. Our deadline is May 1st (short deadline, I know).

    We will meet tomorrow, regular time and place. This is the last official meeting for the semester. I’m interested in last week’s week class (web site), everyone’s summer plans, etc. Adania’s students are welcome, as below.

    Hey Guys,

    Just checking that we are meeting on Wednesday? The two students I am mentoring for Adania’s class would like to join us for our lab meeting as both a part of their classroom assignments, but also to join in on any discussion. Just making sure we do have a meeting scheduled for this week.

     

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, for those of you interested in upgrading the website. The prices including URL and HOSTING are: $5/mo, $60/1 year or $108/2 years. This is for the personal site, which lets you have .com and .org, etc. There is a cheaper version, but the extension of your URL will be .blog. However, that is the only difference and you get the same features and server space for both.

    Anyhow, I am available to help any of you individually or a small group since we didn’t have enough time yesterday to get through the basics.

    Thanks @cgrant. I was sent a Zoom link from @jeanette-pirlo. I will join the meeting via the link. Thanks @jbauer for your ppt!
