Student Spotlight in video!

The Student Spotlight LIVE. Well...almost! 

The Redpath Museum is proud to present a series of videos on its students, their career and their research. Started in 2020 at the start of the pandemic, the Student Spotlight series was first and foremost a way to share the new exhibit on the research happening in the museum labs. Launched just a few weeks before the beginning of the confinement, and with the closing of the museum, it meant our public could not enjoy this exhibit! But without missing a beat, our students were quick to forward us the content of their part of the exhibit to share on our website. And the Student Spotlight was born!

Victoria waving helloIn the Fall of 2021, with the help of Victoria Glynn (pictured here on the left), we wondered how we could bring it one step further. A dynamic video was a logical next step. We then met with 10 students from the various labs and asked them three questions. Of these recordings, our educator Sara Estrada Arevalo created 4 videos where you will learn a lot about them and their paths in science. 

Fascinating, touching and a different view of science, this is bound to raise interest in other students both young and old as well as anyone curious about the museum, the University, the research conducted at the Redpath or science.

Without further ado, here is the first video where you will meet our students: https://youtu.be/Jo6OCYt75mo
