Jen Schweitzer was awarded over $145,000 in Technology Fee Funds from the University in May. These funds are being used to purchase a suite of computer and environmental monitoring technologies. These resources will
- Contribute to infrastructure and resources at the EEB Field Station,
- Be used in at least five upper division ecology courses which have significant field components (EEB 330, 405, 415, 421, 433),
- Be used in undergraduate teaching and research, including permanent field plots along Robert Whittaker’s historic elevational gradient in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (1952, 1956).
Technology is growing rapidly for field studies and giving our students access to these instruments, techniques, and skills will greatly advance and enhance their learning and future career opportunities.
