Beth is the Outreach Coordinator for the Biodiversity Synthesis Group at the Field Museum of Natural History. She develops, manages and facilitates several different digital outreach projects with Field Museum scientists and the Encyclopedia of Life. Some of which include:
- WhyReef - a virtual reef that teaches about coral reef ecology and conservation
- I Dig Science - a virtual science class that connects students with scientists in real time
- Science@FMNH - a video and podcast series which explores the behind-the-scenes science, collections and research at The Field Museum.
She also conducts learning science research focusing on the role of digital media in increasing STEM skills for learners in formal and informal environments.
Through digital media programs she has combined her two passions of science and education, and her goal of getting youth interacting with scientists and doing real science!
