The Fire and Ice project has only been underway for a month, and we already have a research poster! Boreal Fires faculty Peter Bieniek presented this poster, Improving seasonal forecasting of Alaska wildfires, at a NOAA workshop in California last month.
It's PechaKucha Day at @uafairbanks with our own @pipsveazey presenting on new Fire and Ice project.
The Alaska EPSCoR science cave has had some visitors - a young astronaut, a unicorn, Operetta from Monster High is on a field trip and Dr. Honeydew Bunsen with his assistant Beaker are visiting on sabbatical from Muppet Labs!
Uma Bhatt , co-lead of the Fire and Ice Boreal Fires team, presented on the project today at the Alaska Interagency Fall Fire Review in Fairbanks.
Thanks to everyone! Fairbanks Startup Weekend was fabulous. We worked hard, we were exhausted, we were excited, we awarded prizes and to top off a great time the Great One (Denali, not Gretzky) could be seen from campus as the event ended. Congratulations to 3rd - Alaskan Adventure Tours 2nd - Icebreaker 1st - Armadillow All the ideas were great and let's do this again next year. #swfairbanks #startups #alaskastartups #innovation #APrizeForYouAndAPrizeForYou #nanooknation #buildthealaskayouwant
Presentations are over and now our judges and jury deliberating. We've got TechStars judging criteria but, tbh, everyone is a winner because these ideas are great. Good job everyone and thank you. #swfairbanks #innovation #pickmepickme #fairbanks #startups #pitch #alaskastartups #buildthealaskayouwant
