Bring researchers into your classroom and give students a window into the process of scientific inquiry. Join us for an informal chat with researchers whose field work directly impacts community members in California, Maine, and Ohio. Find out who they are, how they got interested in their research, and the scientific questions they are asking. Instructor Guide and Event Resources available.

"Live from the Field" events are 50-minute events where researchers with three field sites describe their interests and research in 8-minute videos, then participants join a live moderated Q&A session with the researchers. Events are recorded for asynchronous instructional use, and available to all.

“Live from the Field” events are international collaborations led by the Center for Environmental Inquiry that give students virtual field experiences in ecosystems all over the world. Events are informal and open to everyone to generate opportunities to speak with researchers and develop a personal interest in doing research. All are welcome.
