“Meet the Maker” of the Beyond the Box: SDGs exhibit, Nebraska alumna Peyton Bishop
March 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As part of SDG Action and Awareness Week, the CASNR Global Learning Hub is excited to present several events showcasing University of Nebraska students, alumni, faculty, and staff work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. (CASNR: College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources)
“Beyond the Box: CASNR Edition” is a collection of resources in an interactive audio exhibit highlighting Nebraska faculty and staff contributions towards the Sustainable Development Goals (currently on display at the Nebraska East Union third floor). The project was created to utilize digital storytelling to support students in various grades as they explore their future. Through focusing on important human values, these collections of stories highlight how individuals have found their way into the sciences and how their chosen career has allowed them to do amazing and impactful work related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The “Maker” of this exhibit, Peyton Bishop, is a UNL CASNR alumna with background in fisheries and wildlife, and a former team member with U. Nebraska’s science literacy initiatives. She has a passion for bringing valuable, educational, and diverse STEM learning experiences to youth and currently serves as an AVID Tutor with the Lincoln Public School district
