Biology graduate student Briante Najev wins award for climate-oriented outreach activity

Briante Najev, a first-year graduate student in the University of Iowa's Department of Biology, won a European Society for Evolutionary Biology Outreach Fund grant to create outreach activities explaining climate issues.

With the award, Najev will lead an activity, called EcoStax, with people across eastern Iowa, particularly Muscatine and Davenport. In this activity, which was created by the National Center for Science Education, participants build an ecosystem, then try to keep it stable under the duress of climate change, helping to make climate issues local and personal.
