Optimizing Delaware courts

Over the past year, students and faculty from UD's Lerner College have helped the Delaware Judiciary to make a number of process and management improvements.

STEM for the holidays

Melissa Jurist, coordinator of K-12 education in the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware, offers suggestions to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math.

Topics may include but are not limited to sea level rise and extreme weather, food security, water quality, land use, energy conservation, recycling, composting, pollution, consumption and environmental footprint. 

The contest runs from March 1 to April 3.

From April 4 to April 11, videos will be posted on DENIN’s Facebook page. The number of likes or votes each video receives will be factored into the scoring. The DENIN SPC will also judge the videos based on originality, creativity, and adherence to the theme.

The first place winner and runner up will be announced on April 12. Two cash prizes will be awarded: $500 for first prize and a $250 runner up. Prizes will be awarded and the top videos will be screened publicly during the University’s Earth Week celebration. 

Please submit your video via dropbox to SPC chair Amelia Snelling by 5 p.m. on April 3. All submissions should include the name of the video, the name(s) of the individual or team members and an email and phone number where the team can be reached. Only one person’s contact information is required. 

The video competition is part of the “Challenges and Choices” series of events being sponsored by DENIN in 2013 to focus attention on four major environmental challenges facing Delaware: sea level rise and extreme weather events, food and water security, land use and energy.
