Martha Walker ’17 pauses while catching fish from Monument Creek during Professor Rebecca Barnes’ Block 7 Stream Ecology course. The course worked with professionals from the Colorado Department of Natural Resources who are monitoring the ecology of streams by practicing electrofishing, a process that temporarily stuns fish while researchers catch and log the varieties of fish. Barnes plans to regularly monitor Monument Creek as a partnership with DNR.  Photo by Jennifer Coombes

Charlie Theobald ’17, right, participates in a senior thesis theatre project conducted by Soeren Walls ’17, seated. The project, Iris-31, is a virtual reality experience created so that participants can both watch from behind glass or put on the VR glasses and experience an alternate reality. Iris-31 is based on a story Walls’ grandfather told him about a hurricane that hit Belize in 1931 and the double meaning that the word iris can have in relation to water, the eye, and its purification qualities.
