The recent St. Petersburg Science Festival had two purposes: showing off local institutions' research and work, and getting a younger generation interested in science. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you on a tour of the Fest, where hands-on learning was the order of the day.

Suicide Prevention Workshop

It’s an eye-opening statistic: suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people between 15 and 24.
To help recognize the warning signs and prevent youth suicide, USF’s Department of Child and Family Studies recently presented a workshop for school administrators and other mental health care providers. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looks at the community approach these researchers recommend.
