Science Pub at the Tap Root
Anchorage, Alaska. January 12, 2014
Expedition Arguk was the featured presenter for the January 2014 Anchorage Science Pub, at the Tap Root. The house was completely packed, and the event organizers told us that this was the most well-attended Science Pub they'd ever had! We had a great time talking about Arctic issues and sharing slides, advice, and information from the trip. This was our first public presentation and the attendance and reaction was very encouraging. Huge thank you to everyone who attended, and especially to Jackie Cason for setting up the event!
Alaska Commons wrote an article about the presentation and the expedition, available here. (Backup copy here.)

Crowdfunding AK event at Bear Tooth Theatrepub
Anchorage, Alaska. July 28, 2014
Crowdfunding AK was an event hosted at Bear Tooth in Anchorage, to help attendees "learn more about how crowdfunding is changing the face of fundraising and the way people access capital." The panel included Danae Ringelmann, a co-founder of the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform, along with a number of Alaskan groups that have launched successful crowdfunding campaigns.
Expedition Arguk members Brett and Chelsea participated in the panel to discuss our Kickstarter campaign, which raised $5,370 and closed with 134% of the target funding.
