Science Friday

Be sure to check out our very own Dr. Rob Venette today on Science Friday!

Winter Is Here!

And those of us in the Salt Institute are knee deep in research and interviews.  The polar vortex has been making Minnesota colder than normal, and lots of news outlets have become very interested in our work.  Dr. Venette and I (Lindsey) were featured in a MyFox9 report on how emerald ash borer might be affected by this extreme cold snap.

One correction to the video: I don’t actually take the larvae outside to freeze them. Not sure where he got that idea, but it was a pretty rushed interview.

Be on the lookout for more interviews in the next week!

Update 1/9/2014: We made the front page of the Star Tribune!  Rob and I (Lindsey, again) are featured, and the web article includes a video.
