Telling the stories of science: Rebecca Wessel ’24 explores digital narratives

September 6, 2022

Rebecca Wessel ’24 spent her summer as the climate change technologies fellow at Marx Science and Social Science Library. An environmental studies major, Wessel was already interested in exploring the various intersections of conservation, environmental justice, and spatial mapping (with Geographic Information Systems, or GIS). After completing three data-driven, interactive projects—two of her own design—Wessel came away with critical new skills in her field and plenty of potential topics for her senior thesis.
