Lights, camera, DOTTERELS!

Amber, the resident writer, is starting work on a three-part mini-documentary series featuring the STEM-VRSE research team and their recent trip to New Zealand. The series will focus on Katherine’s research on reef communities off the coast of Poor Knight’s Islands, Dakota’s research on how early career STEM researchers think about VR technology, and Katja’s research on the behavior of the New Zealand dotterel.

Amber’s work will be an ongoing project, so stay tuned for updates! If you have any ideas you would like to see featured, or if you want to hear more stories about our adventures, don’t hesitate to email or message us at or social media @stemvrse.
