NCES Annual Meeting and Banquet: October 24, 2017
This year’s keynote speaker was Dr. Adrian Smith, head of the Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and Assistant Research Professor at North Carolina State University. Dr. Smith’s research interest is in animal behavior and communication, specializing in social insect communication. His interest in communication does not stop there! Dr. Smith produces digital multimedia projects that focus on science and scientists communicating their research. In his series “Explained by the Author,” Dr. Smith works with scientists to create compelling short films that tell the story of their research. Dr. Adrian Smith gave a presentation on science communication, video, and entomology.
The NC entomological society annual meeting is a wonderful way to connect with professional and aspiring entomologists in North Carolina. Our meetings provide an opportunity for graduate students and professional entomologists to present their research, for entomologist to network with potential employers, for outstanding entomologists to be awarded for their work, and for the general public to be educated about entomology.
