We are working on reorganizing the Uzuri group, looking at the group format and leadership to ensure that outreach to People of Color in the SAGE community continues. We are seeking feedback from People of Color -- those who have participated in Uzuri, and those have not but might be interested in participating in the future. Please give us your feedback in a brief survey here. (under 10 minutes)


Your participation is critical, and we really appreciate it!

Fun Facts

about SNOW

Maybe you knew that Syracuse tried to make it illegal in 1992? I didn't. Do you know what graupel is? Or that a scientist found two snowflakes that were actually identical? Who holds the record for most snow angels made simultaneously? So maybe you DON'T know everything about snow. Well, it's back, that's for sure. If we're going to be talking about it anyway, sharing a few fun facts might be nice. See the article at Mental Floss here
