Summer Research Experiences

There are a lot of options for hands-on learning. Come find your science!

A large number of our students spend their summers involved in geoscience research projects, agencies, and topics. The level of engagement is impressive. Faculty and students are grateful for all the support from alumni-supported funds -- the Kozak et al and Hawkins funds -- that allow them to engage so meaningfully in research. Students often present their summer research at national conferences.

On the next few pages you can read about several projects, in the students' own words.
