Saturday, Dec. 2nd, was an exciting opportunity for students in the Earth Science Department to share their knowledge with over 25 girl scouts. Accompanied by parents and troop leaders, the girls visited the department to learn more about the geosciences and to work toward badges for geology and geocacheing. Student members of the Association of Women Geologists (AWG) and TTU Geoclub organized the outreach event, which included four activities on rocks and minerals, fossils, Mars geology and geocacheing.
Congrats to our girl scout geoscientists, and special thanks to local troop leader Rachel Moen and TTU undergraduate Billie Kibler for facilitating the event. Brandon Page was kind enough to take photos, and a very big ‘thank-you’ to earth science student and faculty volunteers!
