Welcome to the ScienceUWindsor@Home series – your peek into the off-campus lives of the ScienceUWindsor family.
With most of our faculty and staff working remotely, and students studying at home, the people who make up the Faculty of Science wanted to connect by sharing personal videos or photos featuring the things that bring them joy during these unusual times. It is a gives us a nice little insight into what our science family is up to – outside of the lab, out of the field and away from their desks.
Keep visiting as we add more stories - and one could be yours. If you are a member of the Faculty of Science family, whether a student, staff or faculty member, and you want to share a short video, or series of photos highlighting what brings you joy, send your story to Communications Coordinator Sara Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
