Calling all budding marine enthusiasts!
Hatfield Marine Science Center’s Careers in Science webinars provide a great opportunity for students (grades 6-12) to engage LIVE with professionals, learn about job opportunities, and hear about the paths our presenters have taken to get to where they are today. Cost is FREE and pre-registration is required.
COMING UP for GRADES 6-8

What do cows and penguins have in common? Join us as Suzanne Winquist shares how her winding career path went from increasing biodiversity on working ranches to strapping video cameras onto penguins in Antarctica. Her story is an adventure guided by curiosity and the love of wildlife, wild places, and science! Learn how her unique experiences led her to her current graduate work researching Adelie penguins within the Seabird Oceanography Lab at Oregon State University (OSU). Also hear from Rebecca Mostow, a graduate student at OSU studying dune ecology and beachgrass hybridization. Rebecca will share how she combines dune plant surveys and genetic lab work to investigate how grasses build the iconic Oregon coast dunes. She will also discuss some of the (mis)adventures that lead her to a career in ecology, including how a pinky promise and rotting whale launched her on her scientific path.
