May 2020 ‘Out of the Blue’ zooms in on physics exploration, microbiology adventures, digital storytelling

Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is staying in touch thanks to teleconferencing technology with our May 2020 edition, featuring conversations on physics research and recognition from the National Science Foundation, faculty and undergraduate explorations in bacterial behavior and food safety, and delving into public history with help from digital storytelling. Join us to hear from:

• Dr. Hanna Terletska, an assistant professor in MTSU’s Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, who’s one of the university’s first two faculty members honored by the NSF with its Early Career Development Program and is working to encourage more women in science alongside her research involving quantum materials and superconductors.

• Dr. Mary Farone, a professor in the CBAS Department of Biology, who’s using her work with the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture in microbiology and pathogens to bring more MTSU undergraduate research opportunities and project funding.

• Dr. Molly Taylor-Poleskey, an assistant professor in the Department of History in MTSU’s College of Liberal Arts, and senior history major Audrey Creel, who are using digital storytelling skills with classes to explore the history of Nashville neighborhoods.

You can watch “Out of the Blue,” with host Andrew Oppmann, anytime online and on Murfreesboro cable Channel 9 daily at 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and on NewsChannel5+ at 3:30 p.m. every Sunday. “Out of the Blue” also is available as iTunes and Google Play podcasts and on other cable outlets in Middle Tennessee, so check local listings.
