Purposes of the Source to Sink: A CompareCast
To disseminate current topics within geoscience research to an audience of varying science literacy
To address alternative conceptions of what “science” is and how research is performed
To provide educators and science communicators with the information and tools to teach diverse learners

To bridge the gap between educator and researcher by exploring our individual approaches to science in our respective fields
Who We Are
Amy is our resident Environmental Educator! She is an environmental educator and conservationist, having taught environmental education in residential programs in Washington and has led conservation corps crews in Washington and Vermont. She has a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Studies and a Masters of Education with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction. Amy's career goal is to connect people to land and give them to knowledge and tools to restore land through community. In her free time, she loves exploring outside and reading.
Kyle is our resident Geoscientist! He is currently a Doctoral student in Geology with a focus in Hydrogeology and has previously earned a B.S. and M.S. in Geology. His research interests include groundwater-surface water interactions, karst hydrogeology, and chemical transport through the environment. His current research involves determining the contributions of distant surface water bodies to springsheds through sinkholes and karst conduits. Outside of research, Kyle has been a Teaching Assistant for a number of Earth Science courses, is a member of the American Geophysical Union Hydrology Section Student Subcommittee (AGU-H3S), and is an avid enjoyer of the outdoors.
