Counting grasshoppers: a summer in the field with RECCS
For community college students who study science, opportunities for fieldwork are rare. But one program in Boulder is trying to change this. Each summer, about a dozen students pair with mentors for a nine-week immersive experience studying science in all its forms. In July, CIRES Stephanie Maltarich spent the day with one of these students, who spent her summer catching and counting grasshoppers.
