Brooke Talbot

From the heart of Nebraska’s largest city, Brooke spent her childhood in her backyard, turning over garden stones and sketching out creatures in journals. During her undergrad at UNL in Agricultural Education-Leadership, Brooke connected with the Platte Basin Timelapse project by taking a class with Mike and Mike. Through the course, Brooke discovered that her passion for the outdoors, education and the arts could merge in a powerful way. For her graduate work in Applied Science, Brooke aims to create a science-based educational mobile app that draws upon PBT images and data. The app will contain downloadable nature guides, unlockable time-lapse videos, and the ability for users to contribute photos and make location-based wildlife sighting reports. By designing the app to encourage groups and families to get outside, Brooke hopes it will help others discover what is in their own “backyard.”
