Science for Alaska Lecture Series continues this week on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at the Westmark Hotel. It is a free public lecture that will be in the Gold Room. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the lecture will begin at 7 p.m. Laura Conner, research assistant professor of science education at the Geophysical Institute at UAF will be discussing, “Drawing Girls to Science Through Art.” As once said by the great Mark Watney (you will need to have seen The Martian to appreciate this): “In the face of overwhelming odds, I’m left with only one option, I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this.” Go science things people!  -Sarah ManriquezPhoto Editor

If you’re like me, and have two writing-intensive correspondence courses that you didn’t even check the syllabi of until last week, you should be sensible and spend this Thursday getting ahead on your classwork. It’s not fun to realize you’re already behind on your classwork, so get dug out from under the heap of work that you’ve created for yourself! And if you’re totally caught up, don’t you dare talk to me right now. – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

There will be a scholarship workshop in Room 303 of the Gruening Building from 5:30-7 p.m.  A UA Scholarship Officer  will present information pertaining to the UA Scholarship Application.  For those who don’t know, University of Alaska offers a wide range of scholarships to students, some of which can be obtained by filling out a single application, due Feb. 15.  If you, like me, need as much monetary assistance as possible to make it through your degree plan, it’s worth it to check out the workshop.  You never know what you could gain from it. -Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

The Fairbanks Arts Association is hosting a juror’s lecture by Anchorage artist Barbara Lavelle in the Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts, located at Pioneer Park. Barbara Lavelle is the guest juror for the upcoming show “Patterns of Influence 2016: Vessel” that will be in the Bear Gallery, so this would probably be a neato event for anyone who is interested in art or the Fairbanks art scene. The lecture is taking place in the Blue Room from 7-8 p.m. -Molly Putman / Layout Editor
