KAWC

When the nation's communities at large think about science, they don't always think of Arizona. The Arizona Science Desk, a two year collaboration among the Arizona NPR stations, sought to change that, by raising the statewide and national profile of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) news in Arizona.

KAWC is pleased to host author and Arizona Science Desk Reporter, Melissa Sevigny for our next Spirited Discussion!  Sevigny will read from her book, Mythical River, and discuss with attendees pertinent issues that it raises.  Mythical River explores the history of the Colorado River Basin, including the science and policies that are integral to the current state of water in the West.

On any given day KAWC listeners will hear us say, "Broadcasting from the Robert E. Hardy Radio Studio Complex..." 

That is part of a legal announcement we make at the top of each hour to identify the station and the community we serve.

Maybe you hear Hardy's name on our station IDs and have no idea who he is.  Or maybe you are a long-time Yuma resident and you are familiar with Uncle Bob, as he was known throughout his broadcasting and academic career.

Arizona Edition - KAWC recently kicked off a series of events designed to bring citizens together with the civic leaders and local experts on topics that impact and shape the community. They’re called Spirited Discussions and are hopefully a relaxing and enlightening civic engagement experience for those that attend.

KAWC hopes to conduct Spirited Discussions every couple of months.

Thank you if you've already supported KAWC in 2012! Thanks to the generous contributions of over 500 listeners, community organizations and businesses, we've been able to bring you...
