GEO students visit UF labs

geo2017labvisitsOver the past few weeks, the Geoscience Engagement and Outreach (GEO) students from Santa Fe College have been visiting the labs of the UF mentors in preparation for selecting which mentors they want to work with. We tried this method this year after last year selecting students for research groups based on their interests expressed in their applications. The students, who started the program in January 2017, will start on their research with one of three mentors this week: me (far right, denim jacket), on geoscience education research; Cori Matyas (orange jacket), on hurricane research; or Jasmeet Judge (front row, jeans and white blouse), on soil hydrology. The program runs through the school year and summer, when students will work at the Orlando Science Center as interns, sharing the research work they’ve been doing with their audiences. Funded by the National Science Foundation as part of their Improving Undergraduate STEM Education – GEOPATHS program.
