Lewis & Clark’s annual Dance Extravaganza, also known as Dance X, highlights the original works of student choreographers and performers. This year’s event will take place on December 2 and 3, with performances at 7:30 and 10 p.m. on the Main Stage in Fir Acres Theatre.
At a five-state conference in November, the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust recognized the outstanding work of science researchers Margaret Metz, associate professor of biology, and Jack Waite BA ’23 and Sofia Reeves BA ’23.
Warren Pereira BA ’99 spent more than a decade making Tiger 24, a film that focuses on tiger conservation through the highly publicized removal of a tiger dubbed T-24 from his natural habitat in India.
The Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies, held November 9–11, will examine the role of storytelling as a means of preserving history and passing down cultural traditions.
L&C students interested in STEM teaching careers will soon have a new opportunity to collaborate with undergraduate and graduate school faculty as well as Portland-area science teachers. Together, they will create conservation-centered data science teaching methods and materials to benefit 6th through 12th graders. The project is funded by a $105,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant.
