Video: "She's a Scientist" featuring the work of Laura Thompson

Welcome to “She’s a Scientist,” a video series launched to highlight the work of female researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Today, we’re showcasing Laura Thompson, associate extension educator with Nebraska Extension, who uses sensor-laden drones to fly over farms, collecting data that is used to show producers how to save money. The work is part of the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network, which collaborates with farmers to test new methods and technologies.

“She’s a Scientist” videos are a regular feature in Nebraska Today. To nominate a researcher for the series, email or call 402-472-8515. Review the entire series here.
