About Rivers Lab

Rivers Lab is a paper/report reading and discussion group assembled so that we can, as a community of river lovers, break down the prestigious walls of academic papers to learn more about the systems we care for and have a chance to ask questions, discuss, and enjoy each other’s company.

Rivers Lab is a no pressure environment and a great way to learn more about the ecosystems surrounding us by reading relevant scientific literature. Encourage your friends to join – the more diversity of thought, the merrier!

Here’s how Rivers Lab works:

  1. We will meet from 12:00-1:00 on the last Thursday of every month in SYRCL’s conference room (BYO lunch).
  2. Everyone reads the papers beforehand (1-2 papers per month)
  3. Be on time, show up 5 minutes early even!
  4. If you are able, please bring
    • A copy of the paper (hard or online)
    • Paper / pens / laptop / tablet for taking notes
    • Questions, comments, critiques, compliments about the paper
    • Ideas for future topics and discussions
    • A readiness to practice scientific literacy with your community!
