Idaho Moves to Stage 4

Gov. Brad Little moved the state of Idaho to Stage 4 of Idaho Rebounds Tuesday as vaccines are readily available and hospitalizations are down. The guidelines remove restrictions on the size of gatherings, but Idaho Public Health continues the recommendations to social distance and wear masks. For our university, little will change immediately. We will keep our Healthy Vandal Pledge guidelines in place through commencement and into summer session. With guidance from Idaho Public Health, we will readdress our protocols as state and local protocols change.

Plant the Moon Challenge Registration Is Open

A new round of Plant the Moon Challenge is out for applications. The program aims to encourage students to think about agriculture on other planets and what we will need to grow food in lunar and Martian soil. The students receive a pack of either lunar regolith or Martian regolith and get to experiment with fertilizer and additives to determine how best to grow common crops. Idaho Space Grant Consortium is fully funding some Idaho participants (first-come, first-served). Therefore, you may not need to pay for the kit if you submit your application as soon as possible. It is an amazing opportunity for agriculture and space to mix. It is also a fun summer project for students looking to get their hands dirty in some moon and Mars dirt. Registration closes Monday, May 24. Send questions to kristina@uidaho.edu or isgc@uidaho.edu.

Sustainability Center Awards Student Grants

The results from students who earned grants from the Sustainability Center are in. An aluminum recycling competition among fraternities and sororities led by Addie White led to the collection of more than 81,000 cans from 13 teams. White was awarded a $983 grant, and the winning houses won more than $600 for the charity of choice, paid in part from funds from the cans. Beth Hoots and Natalie Wiley were awarded $2,200 to install Smart energy meters in five fraternity and sorority houses. The meters will be used to conduct an energy-use competition between the houses. Annika Esau was awarded $2728.12 to replace a 12,500-square-foot section of lawn grass in front of the Hartung Theater with a drought-tolerant grass. The new grass will help reduce the volume of water needed to keep campus green and lighten the load on the reclaimed irrigation system.
