Guam has experienced mass coral bleaching over the past five years from high water temperatures. Though many corals died from these bleaching events, some corals survived. Dr. Sarah Lemer, an evolutionary biologist, seeks to find out which genes in these surviving corals make them resilient to bleaching. Dr. Lemer is a member of Guam’s EPSCoR research team at the University of Guam.
Science Sunday is free and open to the public. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. No pre-registration required.

Join us for this Science Sunday as we welcome a visiting guest speaker – Kelley Elliott, part of the NOAA Okeanos Explorer crew. The Okeanos Explorer will spend some time docking in Guam and Saipan this summer on their upcoming missions to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument. An awesome way to celebrate Earth Month and learn about unique underwater features of the Marianas!
There will be time to ask questions, share experiences, and connect with Kelley Elliott. Share with your family, friends, co-workers, everybody! No need to sign up – just show up.
Service learning credit is available. Students can attend Science Sunday talk, write-up a summary of talk, and share reflection/summary with program coordinator to be posted on this website.
