WATCH: Up-Goer 5 at AGU17!

Posted by Shane Hanlon

By Shane M Hanlon

One of our favorite parts of our annual meeting is the Up-Goer 5 session that we host. Every year, scientists explain their research using the 1000 (ten-hundred) most common words in the English language. The results are fun, silly, heartfelt, surprising, and overall a great time.

At our most recent meeting, we recorded the session and now the video is live! We strongly encourage y’all to watch to the whole thing; however, if you want to skip to you a certain speaker, you can!

Check out the session here and find specific talks below.
