Developing Human Potential
What are Alec students doing?
Lincoln, Neb. — A new program at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is giving the public an inside look at scientists' lab and field work. Streaming Science is a student-driven science literacy program that highlights the work of scientists conducting critical agricultural and environmental research in Nebraska labs and landscapes. Through a series of courses and hands-on experiences, students majoring or minoring in agricultural and environmental sciences communication produce photo essays, videos, podcasts and online field trips.
ALEC in Action Newsletter
I see some students who are hesitant about whether or not they have what it takes to be a leader and who are just completely nervous. By the end of the year they are so seasoned, it is like a graduation watching them go off and experience the rest of their academic career with all the skills they learned."

Platte Basin Timelapse
Two AESC faculty members, Michael Farrell and Michael Forsberg, are using the power of photography and storytelling to show the Platte River Basin in motion. The Platte Basin Timelapse project follows the Platte River Basin through the lenses of 40+ time-lapse camera systems placed along the 900 miles starting with the Platte River's headwaters, through the Continental Divide in the Colorado Rockies to the river's confluence with the Missouri River on Nebraska's eastern border.
Farrell is Special Projects Manager for Nebraska Educational Telecommunications in addition to his faculty appointment with AESC.
